Description of problem:
It is impossible to run the 'Authentification Configuration' part of the setup
tool. This is rather important and must be fixed before fc5 final.
Note: The component that has the bug may be authconfig instead of setuptool.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fc5test2
2. Log in as root
3. Run /usr/sbin/setup in a terminal
3. Select 'Authentification Configuration' 'Run Tool'
Actual Results: The terminal switches from the blue-and-red setup colors back to the original
terminal schema colors, the authconfig 'usage' message appears on the
terminal for a short period of time, and then the blue-and-red main setup menu
reappears. All this happens in a very short period of time (~0.3s).
Expected Results: The menu for Authentification Configuration (authconfig) should appear.
It looks like running 'Authentification Configuration' executes authconfig
with the wrong options/context, resulting in an error and the 'usage' printed.
The setuptool launcher is attempting to run
"/usr/share/authconfig/authconfig-tui.py". To help narrow
this down, are you able to run this script directly?
Running /usr/share/authconfig/authconfig-tui.py works, in that the authconfig
red-and-blue menu appears and the user can select options.
The existing configuration gives /usr/sbin/authconfig and
/usr/share/authconfig/authconfig-tui.py equal precedence, so setuptool was
launching the first one it found. After fixing that, I noticed that the
precedence-sorting code wasn't working correctly, so that needed to be fixed as
well. Both will be fixed in 1.18-1. Thanks!
