Thread: Starting "Install Software" from start menu doesn't prompt for root pass!

  1. #1

    Default Starting "Install Software" from start menu doesn't prompt for root pass!

    I just installed opensuse 12.1 and my main user is NOT root, has a different password from root, is not part of the root group yet when I open things from the start menu that should prompt for a root password, they just open without prompting for a password! How do I fix this?

    Please ignore this, it turned out to be I'm an idiot and hadn't ejected the CD.

    actually: Thank you for posting the solution! because when i read your
    symptoms i thought: *HOW*/*WHY* does that happen??

    and, because you took the trouble to post again, i (and i guess a few
    others) now know!

    thank you (and you are not an idiot...proven by the simple fact you are
    smart enough to use Linux!!)
