Description Josef Bacik 2004-06-03 16:52:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
When you try to set a user accounts expiration date, you will set it,
hit ok, then open it back up and there will be no expiration date. 
This is fixable, the programmer simply made a typo.  But when that is
corrected the program still sets the wrong expiration date.  Say for
instance I set an account to expire June 3, 2004, it will enter it as
expiring June 4, 2004.  I do not beleive this to be a bug with
redhat-config-user, but rather with the library libuser.  I have
patched it through redhat-config-user however, its ugly, but it works,
and I'm going to attatch it to this bugzilla report.  As soon as I
figure out how to that is :)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open redhat-config-users
2.Set the expiration date for the account
3.Press ok
4.Look at the user properties again, there will be no expiration date


Actual Results:  You didnt see and expiration date.  After the
variable name problem was fixed, I set the expiration date with
usermod to June 1, 2004, and when I pulled it up on
redhat-config-users, got an expiration date of May 31, 2004

Expected Results:  I should have been able to set the expiration date
to begin with.  Also should have seen June 1, 2004 as the expiration
date in redhat-config-users.

Additional info:

I beleive the second part of this problem to not actually be a problem
with redhat-config-users, but rather with libuser and perhaps the time
in the on_ok_button_clicked function.

The patch that fixes both the invalid variable name and the wrong date problem

This will fix the variable name for in userProperties.py so you can at least
set the expiration date.  This also has the workaround for the wrong date
problem, albiet it is not the greatest patch in the world, it works.

Patch applied and contained in system-config-users-1.2.14-1 in
Rawhide.  Please let me know if you need a formal errata created for
this bug.
Comment 5 Josef Bacik 2004-06-21 16:26:42 EDT
Just a note, I applied the patch to a new system and noticed that I
messed up with the date problem, and I'm working on fixing it now. 
You can still set the expiration date fine.  I don't think this needs
to be an errata, I only had one user with this problem and he was
content with the patch I sent him.
