Description James Gregory 2008-04-29 11:35:19 UTC
Description of problem:
When submitting a profile using the smolt-gui, it gives you a link to your Smolt
home page, but does not reveal what the admin password is for your profile.
However, running smoltSendProfile and re-submitting the profile, the admin
password is output after the profile has been submitted.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the Smolt GUI
2. Submit your profile to Smolt, or access your Smolt home page
Actual results:
No details are provided for the admin password to your Smolt profile

Expected results:
The details about your admin password would be available somewhere within the
Smolt GUI

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 10:22:11 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Same issue on openSUSE using version smolt-  Once you do get an admin password you encounter Bug 460099.

Comment 3 James Gregory 2008-11-26 09:47:37 UTC
This error is still present in smolt- - smolt-gui doesn't show the password, but using smoltSendProfile does.

Comment 4 v.plessky 2008-12-01 00:15:50 UTC
This bug is still present in Smolt shipped with Fedora 10:


Data in Smolt would be not accurate until Admin password is provided via Smolt-gui interface.
Few people would read FAQ and re-run smolt from CLI.

BTW: I can confirm that Fedora rpms:


work fine on Mandriva Linux 2009.0.

Just posted profile and checked-in what works:
The only problem during installation was requirements of "python(abi)"

# rpm -i python-paste-1.7.1-1.fc10.noarch.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies:
	python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by python-paste-1.7.1-1.fc10.noarch

"python(abi)" is not provided by python package on Mandriva 2009

Comment 6 Mike McGrath 2008-12-09 18:51:22 UTC
The problem here is none of us smolt guys know anything about gui programming. 

You can always run "smoltSendProfile -a" to get it.  Otherwise it'll have to take one of us some time to learn how to code it or for someone to work with us to make a patch.  Sorry, I know thats not very helpful right now.

Comment 7 James Gregory 2008-12-09 20:12:10 UTC
That's fair enough. Would it perhaps be possible to make a note somewhere - the help guide perhaps or on the wiki - which explains how to find the password?

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 09:33:56 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

This problem is still there after Fedora 11 release.

Comment 10 Mike McGrath 2009-07-20 21:53:42 UTC
Just fixed upstream, it'll be out in the next release.
