Enable to start graphical root-tools


For a few days, I wanted to install nessus. But the programm needed glib, atk, pango, and gtk to run propely. So I tried to install those stuffs but wasnīt very successfull. Nessus still doesnī t work in graphical modus, and now I canīt even start any graphical tools which requires root's privileges. For example, if I start "adding and removing application", it doesnīt happen anything. And when i start FC, it takes now a few minutes until eveyhing is loaded. Graphical applications with normal userīs privileges work good as before, only stuffs where i need to log in as root.
I know i messed up a few things and was not very professionnal but FC is new for me and already miss Suse and its yast.
Anyway, I wanted to know if anyone could help me. I donīt understand whatīs missing or which configuration is wrong.
