Apologies for the cross-post.  All help is appreciated.

I just installed Freebsd 8.1 amd64 with the kde 4.45 package. I am

trying to get the PolicyKit to work with hal using the kde policyKit 'manager'.
I have tried both running as root or using su.
In both cases, when I pull up the (KDE) PolicyKit screen, it does not allow me to change
anything.  The modify settings is greyed out in the default area
section, even if I change something and if I try and grant a user privilages, the "Grant" button
stays disabled after I choose a user.
Any idea how I can get this to work? Is there some system setting I have forgotten? Thanks in advance.
