Hi members of the openSuSE forums,
I have a minor problem with my "Update Applet 2.28.0" in Gnome. It occurs when I want to make the applet do one or more suggested update(s). It always asks me for the password of superuser/root:
"Authenticate : Authentication is required to update packages. [...]".
I think under my installation before (11.1 maybe updated from an older version) I could tell the automatic/semi automatic updater to remember the su password (in YaST or in the authentication dialog?).
In the help manual on my computer (and in the internet) there is the possibility to make the updater remember the password via policy kit:
("Access to all privileged operations is controlled via PolicyKit." See: GNOME Documentation Library : gnome-packagekit Manual : Introduction)
I could not find any policy kid or any other possibility to give to the automatic updater (or its user) that privilege permanently (=to remember authorization).
I think on a system with more (real) users this could be a real problem (not just an inconvenience).
