Hi

I had installed ConsoleKit-0.4.5 in the blfs Version 2012-07-10

So if I have to install
ConsoleKit-0.4.6<http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/postlfs/consolekit.html>i
will have to reinstall all its dependencies again (newer versions)
even
meddle with shadow and PAM (new versions).
Is there any way I can create the file by reinstalling the same old version
of ConsoleKit-0.4.5 and configuring it?

I dont have any visible problems with network manager except that the
network icon (applet) doesnt show on the taskbar (only happens with a
normal user, it shows when logged into root), but internet works perfectly
even wifi

Im guessing maybe I have to add the user to some group....?

Apart from this I have this annoying problem with the time settings. I cant
seem to fix it. I used setclock according to the book and that fixed the
time temporarily but when I logout and login again I cant fix the time. I
cant also change the time using the graphical date and time settting option.
