Thread: Kdesu freezes when a password is entered

  1. #1

    Default Kdesu freezes when a password is entered

    If I try to run Yast2 a "Run as root - KDE su" window pops up asking for the password. I enter the password but nothing happens. After a while I have to close the window; I get a warning 'Application "kdesu" is not responding' and I then click 'Terminate Application kdesu'.

    The same is true if, for example, I'm using Dolphin and want to open a folder with "File Manager - super user mode".

    From the command line I have done this:

    Code:
    tim@tvb-opensuse0:~> yast2
    Absolute path to 'yast2' is '/usr/sbin/yast2', so running it may require superuser privileges (eg. root).
    tim@tvb-opensuse0:~> su -
    Password:  
    tvb-opensuse0:~ # yast2
    QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'
    libGL error: unable to load driver: nouveau_dri.so
    libGL error: driver pointer missing
    libGL error: failed to load driver: nouveau
    I can then use yast2 but I wonder if some of these errors might diagnose the problem. But I don't know what they mean! Nouveau is installed and running, according to Yast2 Hardware Information.

    I've also tried this:

    Code:
    tim@tvb-opensuse0:~> kdesu yast2
    libGL error: unable to load driver: nouveau_dri.so
    libGL error: driver pointer missing
    libGL error: failed to load driver: nouveau
    kdesu_stub
    Killed
    tim@tvb-opensuse0:~> 
    This starts kdesu but again, when I enter the password, it freezes. 'Killed' appears after I terminate the application.

    Any help please?!

    Some recent updates seem to have cured this!
