Description Neale Ferguson 2003-07-30 11:53:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

Description of problem:
After entering the user information and clicking "Ok" the application
automatically closes and I receive:
libuser fatal error: lu_homedir_populate() called with non-NULL
*error/usr/share/redhat-config-users/redhat-config-users: line 4:  9499 Aborted

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-users
2. Add details for a new user
3. Click OK

Actual Results:  User details are added to /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow,
/etc/group,/etc/gshadow but no home directory is created, the application
terminates and the following message is displayed:
libuser fatal error: lu_homedir_populate() called with non-NULL
*error/usr/share/redhat-config-users/redhat-config-users: line 4:  9499 Aborted

Expected Results:  User should have been added and home directory populated.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Neale Ferguson 2003-07-30 16:09:57 EDT
redhat-config-users works fine with the s390x beta1.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-07-31 12:38:01 EDT
That error message looks like it is coming from libuser.  Changing components.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2003-08-14 10:08:20 EDT
workx for me:
# rpm -q libuser redhat-config-users
Comment 4 Neale Ferguson 2003-08-14 10:26:53 EDT
My level of redhat-config-users is: redhat-config-users-1.1.10-2. I can't use
up2date as I'm beta testing both the 32 & 64-bit versions of taroon and I
registered under the latter one first and cannot get enabled when I register for
the 32-bit stuff.
Comment 5 Florian La Roche 2003-09-05 06:27:34 EDT
I assume this is fixed and I think the RHN account issue is also
fixed. Re-open if something is left todo...
