Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188555
incorrect call to chkconfig
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
The program system-config-authentication (aka authconfig-gtk?) calls chkconfig
incorrectly which is evident by console messages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest in Fedora Core 5.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From console, run system-config-authentication
Following is printed to console:
chkconfig version 1.3.29 - Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Red Hat, Inc.

usage: chkconfig --list [name]
chkconfig --add <name>
chkconfig --del <name>
The following are selections from the strace log:
[pid 2937] execve("/sbin/chkconfig", ["chkconfig", "nscd"], [/* 21 vars */]) = 0
[pid 2937] open("/etc/init.d/nscd", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
[pid 2937] open("/etc/xinetd.d/nscd", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
The call is correct however the message printed on console by chkconfig when
nscd is not installed should be redirected to /dev/null.
Fixed in FC6 authconfig.
