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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run /usr/bin/redhat-config-mouse
2. Try running usr/share/redhat-config-httpd/redhat-config-httpd and it works.
I can't reproduce this here.
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.

Steps to Reproduce is wrong, you should of course run
redhat-config-httpd not redhat-config-mouse.
I'm not sure if this is a usermode bug so I moved the bug over there.

/usr/bin/redhat-config-httpd -> consolehelper
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?
[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
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 okt 1 13:12
/etc/security/console.apps/redhat-config-httpd -> apacheconf
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 okt 1 13:29
/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.
Found a .rpmnew not .rpmnet.
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.
