Description Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-03-30 17:20:23 UTC
piranha uses chkconfig to check the status of certain components, and
checks the return string for "on"/"off". This approach doesn't work when
LANG or LC_ALL has been set.

Workaround: Run piranha like this:

LANG="" LC_ALL="" piranha

Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-03-30 21:05:59 UTC
This entry is referring to the piranha X window GUI, which is an obsolete
component and will not appear in future releases of piranha. It was included in
RH Linux 6.2 to help older piranha users migrate to the new web GUI.

Because the component is obsolete, and there is a work-around, this bugzilla
entry is being flagged as WONTFIX.

However a patch has been created to fix this, and a corrected version may appear
on Red Hat's web site (in errata or rawhide) in the future as part of an
upcoming web GUI update. Until then, user's can manually apply the following
patch to 6.2's piranha source code to achieve the same result:

Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-04-18 15:21:59 UTC
FYI: The patch will appear in next release.
It will not be posted to errata, but may
appear in rawhide in the future.

Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-04-27 18:30:59 UTC
Another Update: Since this GUI is being dropped, this patch will not appear in
any future release of piranha. User's experiencing this problem will need to
apply the manual patch shown above.
