Description maini10 2006-12-16 12:04:56 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.17-10-generic

Trying to open guarddog in kde 3.5.5 (kubuntu distributions) kdesu requires root password. Next, when password is given, the application crash.
Here's a backtrace:

Comment 1 Bram Schoenmakers 2006-12-16 12:10:56 UTC
There's not much we can do. Please install the kdelibs-dbg and kdebase-dbg packages and mention which application you're starting.

If we don't get this information we have to close this bug.

I'm starting guarddog, the firewall configuration utility. Sorry, but I can't submit other information. I have followed your advice and installed those packages for the next time

Don't access invalid array element. Most likely the reason for #138873.
