hi david,

sorry for the late feedback.. i was out of office for sometime and hence
didn't access my mails.

no it was not my doing.. what i did was i pointed my repositories to a
local rawhide sync tree and then i did a yum -y update. i never have
seen the screen you have mentioned in the above URL. Moreover, I have
never logged in as root (well, except for su - )and I clearly have not
used the "Keep/Forget authorisation" thing since Fedora 1.I just wanted
to know what is doing this thing, and if it is a feature of rawhide
*only*, I don't have any problems..I can wait for the stable release of
F8..

btw, that again makes me think...what feature is enabled/disabled in
rawhide and stable release and why ??

just some thoughts..

regards,
amit.
