file manager in su mode

How are you all?
Well, I am still having these bizzare behavior from RedHAT 9.0.
I am useing KDE and I have been trying so many times to initiate the file manager in the super user mode ( the file manager that allows you to write to the vfat partition) but whenever I press on the button, I get the enter your root password message, then the window starts and closes after few seconds, I get no chance to do anything with it.
What should I do?
And why does it behave like this?

thank you.

Sounds like a bug. Are you using Konq? su to root then see if you can open it from the command line.

I had this error message when I tried to initiate Konqueror from the sommand line (in su mode)

[root@localhost phd1]# konqueror
mcop warning: user defined signal handler found for SIG_PIPE, overriding
/tmp/mcop-phd1 is not owned by user
[root@localhost phd1]#

This is the message I get when I tried to initiate the konqueror from a terminal
What should I do?

Does this only happen with konqueror? If so then I'd suggest uninstalling the package and the re-installing it. It probably got corrupetd somehow:

rpm -qa | grep konqueror

should return:


I guess, and I'm not 100% on this, thats the package you need to uninstall and then re-install.
