authorization, QTMac

Has anyone successfully got authentication working on a mac, using the authentication services, and calling a process as that priviliged user.

I am wanting to execute some code as root user. I can authenticate OK, but cannot get the communication pipe to the called program working. I have tried using both QProcess, and normal calls like execle.

I have tried to get the sample AuthSample from Apple working, but doesn't seem to want to.

Am looking for code example showing how this was achieved.

QT 4.8.0
