After an update, all kinds of things I used to be able to do as a user no longer work.
Suspend from the application menu does nothing. I have to run sudo pm-suspend from a terminal.
I can no longer run updates using the Software Manager in System Settings. I get an error message that says something to the effect that I did not provide authorization credentials, but the application never asks for them. I have to run sudo yum update. This wasn't necassary before, so what changed with the update.
When I try to mount a thumb drive, I get this error message:
"An error occurred while accessing 'THUMB DRIVE', the system responded: An unspecified error has occurred.: Did not receive a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
I also can no longer adjust the date and time, unless I use a terminal command where I can use sudo.
Something changed with this last batch of updates, but there were a large number of them since this was the first update since the live CD install. I'm running FC 16 with KDE and the current kernel is 3.3.7-1.fc16.x86_64. I don't remember what the previous kernel was. I saw that it changed with the updates.
I don't know what else broke, these are just what I've found so far.
Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
