SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2
Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (OES 11) Linux Support Pack 1


After installing OES11SP1, policykit controlled desktop functions such as installing RPMs using Nautilus or shutting down the system from the desktop menu do not work anymore.


Please update the packages PolicyKit to 0.9-14.41.1 and apparmor-profiles to 2.3-48.16.1.


During the installation of OES11SP1 the settings in /etc/nscd.conf get changed from
enable-cache password yes
enable-cache group yes

enable-cache password no
enable-cache group no

causing a misfunction in policykit due to insufficient access settings  for nscd and apparmor.
