      Hello,

      When using Konsole with commands like SU Root and entering password, it comes up blank instead of with a username. So if I did something like DNF search Thermald, then it would say you must be in Root, but Konsole will not let me.

      I have done in terminal the command of sudo passwd root, then put in new Root password, to no avail.

      Thank you for the help and great distro!

      Hello Roderick,
      you are saying that neither the su command not sudo passwd root are working correctly and that you get no prompt in response?
      I currently don’t reproduce the problem, maybe I need to check if the new installation media have such problem. It might also be a problem related to network name resolution.
      I will investigate more and thanks if you have some more info to provide.

      Hello Silvan,

      That’s correct. Not the end of the world, but do use terminal for updates sometimes.

      Thanks,

      Hello Roderick,
      the issue seems to be caused by gnupg blocking due to pre-existing files in /root/.gnupg folder.
      I would suggest to run the following commands from a konsole:

      
      su
      [Blocking -> Press CTRL-C and you are root]
      killall -9 gpg-agent
      rm -rf /root/.gnupg
      

      Then the next su or sudo su call should regenerate a clean and correct content of the gnupg folder and fix the problem.

      I hope this helps. Thanks for reporting and appreciating openmamba.
