Description Tim Waugh 2000-10-25 13:34:37 EDT
On a machine with X installed but not gnome-core, rhn_register fails with a
traceback error.  Installing gnome-core, or unsetting DISPLAY, makes it

It would be neat if it could figure out that the GUI isn't going to work
and pretend that DISPLAY is unset if it comes across this situation.
Comment 1 Jay Turner 2001-01-18 12:16:39 EST
I have written a python wrapper for rhn_register which is currently in testing. 
Should certainly solve this little issue (jkt; 1/18/01)
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2001-02-04 12:09:07 EST
Reassigning to Adrian.  This functionality should be present in the next release
of rhn_register, as it is working in CVS currently.
