Realtime-lsm vs. PAM

I went through the steps with apt-get and upgraded to V 1.4. Since that time I have not had access to Time and Date/Services/Network/Shared Folders or Users and groups inside the Administration section. Upon further investigation via security sites, I found that PAM initial configuration "access is denied per default". While I am looking at the following site to try and change the permissions problems, I thought I'd share and ask if anyone else is experiencing the same problems. My site of current reference is http://www.linuxsecurity.com/resource_files/host_security/securing-debian-howto/ch4.en.html Not that I nessecarily access all these functions on a regular basis but it would be nice to have my access restored. The steps outlined on the security site are long and involved. Any thoughts are welcome. (be nice) cheers

Fixing access to the admin programs

This is due to a backport of the Gnome administration tools, required to fix a 64-bit compatability bug. Add your user to the stb-admin group, log in anew, and you should now be able to access those tools again.

thanks Daniel for the reply, tried the addition..i.e. "sudo 64studio-config new" I see where it added my user name to the group but still the same problem. (Assuming that i used the right command to add myself to the list that is.) I am sure this will be cured globally when the final stable is release anyway. correct?

Have tried pretty everything short of reloading and still no access to services. the "sudo 64studio-config new" didn't work. Any ideas?

After my recent 1.4.0 install (I kept my home partition in place) I lost permissions as well. I installed the libnet-dbus-perl package, and ran the 64studio-config new from root terminal. #> apt-get install libnet-dbus-perl #> /usr/sbin/64studio-config new Try it this way, and let us know Cheers

Bravo!
