KDE unable to unlock screen and kcheckpass in 64-current


Hello dear all,

For information, on slackware64-current it is unable to unlock screen under KDE 4.14. This is due to the fact we don't have (and probably don't need !) PAM installed.

This can be fixed by setting suid to kcheckpass:
chmod u+s /usr/lib64/kde4/libexec/kcheckpass

Best regards

Larry

But setting suid flag decreases system security.

Yeah, well...

Try this on Slackware:
Code:
find / -user root -perm -4000 -exec ls -ldb {} \;
One more file does not make such a big difference don't you think?
