Description Jasper O. Hartline 2006-01-17 10:45:40 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050923 Fedora/1.7.12-1.5.1

Description of problem:
Pass %s --rootpath=% --method=% to anaconda, install to the root. (rootPath)
After package installation an exception ir raised in instdata.py

Here it is:
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/instdata.py",
line 133, in write log.error("Would have run:
                                     /usr/bin/authconfig %s", args)
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'args' referenced before assignment

Simple fix I'd imagine. Looks even to be a typo, perhaps.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Actual Results:  Anaconda exception raised.

Expected Results:  Should have run authconfig, and printed a message when in --rootpath mode.

Additional info:

No additional info at this time.

It doesn't look to me like we have ever run authconfig when under --rootpath
mode.  If you examine logs from before FC5 test releases, you will probably see
an error about running authconfig.  However, the traceback you're seeing is a
real problem so I've fixed that.  Feel free to reopen if your previous
experiences indicate we were running authconfig under --rootpath.
