RedHat 9/GNOME insufficient rights
I'm using RedHat 9 and it was working fine, but now I can't use the shutdown option in GNOME anymore, it just says "insufficient rights". When I use shutdown or reboot from the login screen, it just reloads the login screen.
Also, I can't use most of the system tools. Previously I would get a popup saying "Give root password", but now I just get a popup saying 'Insufficient rights", even when I login as root in GNOME.
I still can use "shutdown -h now" from a terminal as root to shut down, but this is very inconvenient. Any suggestions to what is wrong?
The problem might have been caused by the fact that I reinstalled X and GNOME from the the RedHat CDs. I'm not sure however whether the "insufficient rights" problems came directly after that, or later.
Thanks for any help,
