Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 460270
system-config-samba ends with traceback on unknown samba options
Last modified: 2009-09-02 06:12:26 EDT
Description of problem:
system-config-samba cannot handle unknown options (both valid and nonvalid ones) and dies with traceback instead of propper error message. It leaves user with no information on what happened when ran from GUI.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo "you dont know me = yes" >> /etc/samba/smb.conf
traceback on stderr
propper error message (both stderr and gui)
Having this fixed would also prevent bogus (or just poorly described) bugs to be filed against system-config-samba.
Cloned this for Rawhide at bug #460273.
