Description Greg Douglas 2008-08-03 14:12:11 EDT
Description of problem:

After upgrading from Fedora 8, I tried to open system-config-services to have a look at the services, and the display panel is empty. No services are being presented.  I tried to launch it from a terminal as root, and there are no error messages.  The message log does not indicate errors either. Services are indeed running.   

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

system-config-services 0.99.15

How reproducible:

Every time I open it.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. From gnome, System > Adminstration > Services
2. Provide the Root password
3. Panel appears, but it is empty.
Actual results:

Panel appears, but it is empty (no services presented).

Expected results:

A list of services configured by the system.

When started from a terminal, do any error messages appear?
Comment 2 Greg Douglas 2008-08-04 14:44:08 EDT
Hi Nils.

No messages at all (blank).  No indication of any errors anywhere else.  I searched the web and identified another user who has encountered this same problem when upgrading from F8 to F9, but no one has posted a solution.

....oh, and SELinux is on permissive, and there are no SELinux warnings either.

Just ran chkconfig for the first time since upgrading and made a few changes manually.  I tried the system-config-services panel again, and it works now. I wonder if there is some type of setup/upgrade performed when chkconfig is run for the first time.

This one can be closed.

I don't think there is, but please reopen if you run into this again (no, I couldn't reproduce it ;-).
