Maybe. That is what "remembers" the authorizations (I know that KDE has
kwallet for this purpose), I am not sure which exactly application this
is though.

In any case, this problem is with the OP only. I have Jaunty here on a
laptop, work perfectly. I have another Jaunty on a remote machine, works
perfectly. All users here have reported that this weird problem does not
happen with them. This particular user has broken his system in some way
and, IMHO, is not able to backtrack to connect the dots to conclude
which step was the culprit. Unless he posts precise information
regarding various messages and logs, and then some, it is difficult to
diagnose the problem.

To the OP: have you tried purging syaptic and then installing it again?
Plus, please do the experiment (try adjusting clock) I described in my
previous post.


Please reply to this list only. I read this list on its corresponding
newsgroup on gmane.org. Replies sent to my email address are just
filtered to a folder in my mailbox and get periodically deleted without
ever having been read.
