Description David Hubner 2004-04-21 00:12:48 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.2.2)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          Gcc 3.3.2 
OS:          Linux

There seems to be a typo in kdesu in the kdelibs-3.2.2 source.

If kdesu does not except your root password..

1. Go into kdelibs-3.2.2/kdesu
2. Openup su.cpp and goto line 81
3. comment args+= "-";
4. make, make install
