Description Tomas Edwardsson 2003-10-31 05:54:57 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031022

Description of problem:
I'm including usermode version since I think it might be relevant.

When running redhat-config-httpd I get a window that says "Unknown error.". But
if I run /usr/share/redhat-config-httpd/redhat-config-httpd there is no problem,
the configuration wizard starts.

This does not seem to be a problem with other redhat-config-* programs (tries
redhat-config-network and redhat-config-mouse).

Also it might be relevant that I'm using an Icelandic locale although I've tried
to set LANG=C and it still returns the error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
redhat-config-httpd-1.1.0-5 usermode-1.69-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run /usr/bin/redhat-config-mouse
2. Try running usr/share/redhat-config-httpd/redhat-config-httpd and it works.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-11-13 10:18:02 EST
I can't reproduce this here.

Please run
  which redhat-config-httpd
  strace -s128 -f -o redhat-config-httpd.strace.f redhat-config-httpd
  strace -s128    -o redhat-config-httpd.strace   redhat-config-httpd
and attach the output of "which" and the contents of the generated
redhat-config-httpd.strace and redhat-config-httpd.strace.f files to
this bug report?  That may shed some light on what's going on.

[root@tommilap root]# which redhat-config-httpd
Comment 5 Tomas Edwardsson 2003-11-13 10:48:33 EST
Steps to Reproduce is wrong, you should of course run
redhat-config-httpd not redhat-config-mouse.
Comment 6 Tomas Edwardsson 2003-11-13 10:50:08 EST
I'm not sure if this is a usermode bug so I moved the bug over there.

/usr/bin/redhat-config-httpd -> consolehelper
Comment 7 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-11-13 11:32:38 EST
The strace without -f shows that userhelper exited with exit code 255,
which is an most likely an unexpected error.  The strace with -f
indicates that /etc/security/console.apps/redhat-config-httpd doesn't

Can you run 'rpm -V redhat-config-httpd' to check for a
possibly-messed-up installation of the redhat-config-httpd package?
Comment 8 Tomas Edwardsson 2003-11-14 07:49:26 EST
[root@tommilap root]# rpm -V redhat-config-httpd
....L... c /etc/pam.d/redhat-config-httpd
....L... c /etc/security/console.apps/redhat-config-httpd

/etc/security/console.apps/redhat-config-httpd -> apacheconf

/etc/pam.d/redhat-config-httpd -> apacheconf

Found a .rpmnet for both files and replaced the old ones.
redhat-config-httpd is now working.

This was an upgrade from RH 9 so I guess that's what broke it.
Comment 9 Tomas Edwardsson 2003-11-14 07:49:54 EST
Found a .rpmnew not .rpmnet.
Comment 10 Tomas Edwardsson 2004-03-07 05:35:31 EST
This seems to be a upgrade problem and something that might not be a
big issue. At least I'm just closing it with WONTFIX.
