Description of Problem:
I am not able to use rhn_register to register my RH 6.2 machine to Red Hat
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the recommended RPMs from
http://www.redhat.com/network/service/rhl_62.html (without Xwindows packages)
2. run rhn_register
3. press enter (click Next)
4. press enter (click Next)
5. fill in a new account information (desired user name, password, password
6. press enter (click Next)
7. watch the crash
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/sbin/rhn_register", line 119, in ?
File "/usr/sbin/rhn_register", line 100, in main
File "/usr/share/rhn/register/tui.py", line 1033, in main
File "/usr/share/rhn/register/tui.py", line 982, in run
win = self.windows[index](self.screen, self)
File "/usr/share/rhn/register/tui.py", line 422, in __init__
painless registration :)
it does not crash when I enter existing username - it just complains that
the username is already taken and lets me change it
This is a known bug and we will be releasing a new RPM to fix the issue soon.
It is more than a month later now and no fix is available.
I am still not able to register my 6.2 servers to Red Hat Network.
