Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-14 13:03:45 EDT
Did you explicitely tell the installer to not install authconfig?

It seems for some reason authconfig is not being installed, which is required
for the post-install to occur.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-17 11:26:38 EDT
I think this means we need to make sure authconfig is installed and can't be
unselected.

Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2000-08-22 12:04:14 EDT
The installer will no longer fall over in this location, we're not getting any
user feedback on why authconfig isn't installed -- it should be on by default.
