Description Philippe Rigault 2006-01-17 14:25:11 UTC

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):

How reproducible:

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. 

Additional info:

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?

Comment 2 Philippe Rigault 2006-01-17 20:43:25 UTC
Running /usr/share/authconfig/authconfig-tui.py works, in that the authconfig 
red-and-blue menu appears and the user can select options. 

Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2006-01-18 14:07:57 UTC
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!
