Description Alex Gearhart 2005-02-12 04:55:15 UTC

Description of problem:
Services (GUI) hangs when I try to restart the vsftpd dameon.  I have
to do a 'force quit' to close it.  However, it does restart the
dameon, but it hangs and doesn't say "successfully restarted" or
something along those lines.  I am able to use it right after I click
restart.  Also the window freezes, but the rest of the OS is normally

If any further info is needed please let me know.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the services gui
2. Scroll down to vsftpd (which is checked as well)
3. Click restart

Actual Results:  The window froze and didn't respond.  Had to do a
force quit.

Expected Results:  A "successfully restarted" message.

I realize this bug has been brought up, I did an original search and
didn't find anything, but after querying "vsftpd hangs", I saw there
was another report on it.

Comment 2 Radek Vokal 2005-02-15 15:29:35 UTC
Reproduced here .. will look at it closer. Stoping service work just
fine, starting or restarting hangs. 

Comment 5 Nils Philippsen 2005-02-16 12:42:59 UTC
Created attachment 111124 [details]
servicemethods.py with proposed patch

Please put this version of servicemethods.py into
/usr/share/system-config-services (make a backup of the old one first) and try
whether the problem persists.

Comment 6 Radek Vokal 2005-02-16 13:08:56 UTC
Sorry, but the patch doesn't work. Tested on two machines, starting and
restarting of vsftpd service still freezes. 

Comment 7 Nils Philippsen 2005-02-16 13:14:05 UTC
Bummer, I guess I'll have to rethink the whole start/stop/restart/status stuff.
