KDE 4.10.3 polkit1-kde crash in slackware 14


I installed KDE 4.10.3 from alienbob and Decided to finally switch from my openbox/xfce setup, as the 4.10.3 is very snappy for me.

I was taking a look at changing the login themes under kde system settings, which are administrative settings. When I went to apply them it asked for credentials and then polkit1-kde crashed.

First I don't have sudo installed, does kde administrative gui dialogs require sudo?
Or is this just a crash because of possible mismatch with KDE 4.10.3 and polkit1-kde which didn't change from the stock slackware 14 one?

I also have a crash on closing amarok, both 2.6 or 2.7, when exiting on 4.10.3, which looks like it's a known bug in 4.10.3 with a patch and will be fixed in 4.10.4

Usually KDE asks for root's password if it is necessary at all (at least with openSuSE it does). So my guess, too, is an imcompatible polkit1-version.

Thanks for the info, that's what I thought since KDE is the default desktop in Slackware and Slackware doesn't install sudo by default. But I was getting a dialog for credential that didn't ask for root password, but user credentials, with ability to change which regular user, which seemed sudoish.

In checking slackware current polkit-kde packages, and polkit-qt package, none of these have changed from slackware 14, so it doesn't seem like it could actually be a mismatch, as no one else on current seems to have had this problem. So I figured my polkit configuration got trashed, and removed it and reinstalled it, and now everything works and it gives a proper su dialog.
