K10D Stop down metering doesn't work

I have a K10D and I've been having issues with the stop down metering. It used to work ok, but now the camera just flashes F-- on the screen when I put the lens on and nothing happens when I try to stop down.

Perhaps a setting has changed? Not really sure where to look.

Just flashing F-- is a sign of needing to go into the menu and enable use of aperture ring.
