Description Ricky Ng-Adam 2005-03-31 23:59:39 EST
Description of problem:

first, authconfig-gtk not listed as a component in Bugzilla.  But really, this
should be named system-config-authentication as all the others RH config tool. 
This makes install easier and is more consistent.  Why have two executables anyway?


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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to find system-config-authentication
Actual results:

in authconfig-gtk...

Expected results:

in system-config-authentication

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2005-10-14 07:56:59 EDT
I've decided to not change it for now as the benefits are not worth the hassle.
I will reconsider this decision in future.
Comment 2 Ricky Ng-Adam 2005-10-14 13:24:35 EDT
What exactly is the impact of renaming this component? Maybe document it here
for future consideration?
Comment 3 Ricky Ng-Adam 2007-04-28 14:34:07 EDT
Inconsistently named authconfig-gtk still exists in FC7 Test 4. 
system-config-authentication is a symlink to authconfig-gtk.
Comment 4 Ricky Ng-Adam 2007-12-28 13:57:40 EST
This bug till applies to Fedora 8:

[root@localhost ~]# ls -al `which system-config-authentication`
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 2007-11-02 13:07
/usr/sbin/system-config-authentication -> /usr/share/authconfig/authconfig-gtk.py
