Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-02-04 20:23:13 UTC
Should be fixed in redhat-config-users-1.1.4-2.  QA, please verify.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2003-02-07 19:02:25 UTC
[root@jkt3 root]# rpm -q redhat-config-users

[root@jkt3 root]# redhat-config-users
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/mainWindow.py", line 625, in
NameError: global name 'rmrf' is not defined

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-02-07 19:12:24 UTC
Oops.  Should be fixed for real with redhat-config-users-1.1.5-2.  Sorry about
that typo.

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2003-02-08 19:53:39 UTC
1.1.5-2 is still broken.  Diff for fix attached above.

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2003-02-10 18:20:40 UTC
1.1.5-2 behaves correctly for me on my test machine.  Can you show me the
machine that is having the problem?

Comment 7 Brent Fox 2003-02-10 19:13:21 UTC
redhat-config-users-1.1.5-3 should pull in the fix.  Sorry about that.

Comment 8 Jay Turner 2003-02-11 13:19:42 UTC
OK, really not sure what is happening here, but the code is still borked.  For
some reason the change in mainWindow.py isn't making it into CVS.  Here's the
snip from the 1.1.5-3 source:

  for file in files:
            if os.path.isdir(path + '/' + file):
                rmrf (path + '/' + file)

Comment 9 Brent Fox 2003-02-11 17:03:10 UTC
All right.  Please try with 1.1.5-4.  

Comment 10 Jay Turner 2003-02-12 03:13:15 UTC
Fix confirmed with redhat-config-users-1.1.5-4.
