system-config-authentication Crashes on start up
Last modified: 2008-12-22 03:24:32 EST
Description of problem:
The Program does no start up, give the following error:
(authconfig-gtk:14461): libglade-WARNING **: could not find glade file '/usr/share/authconfig/authconfig.glade'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/authconfig-gtk", line 446, in <module>
dialog = module.get_main_widget()
File "/usr/sbin/authconfig-gtk", line 344, in get_main_widget
RuntimeError: could not create GladeXML object
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
just run it
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run it from the menu/command line (system-config-authentication or authconfig-gtk)
the program crushes
it should work
"rpm -ql" shows no glade file, it is obvious that the glade file is not packed with the application (maybe just on 64bit machines)
"rpm -qV authconfig" shows the package is OK, also there has been no update
I guess just packing the glade file will fix the problem
Try 'rpm -V authconfig-gtk'. The glade file is part of the GUI subpackage and not the base package.
I suppose something is hosed up on your system.
Hmm, I think now I need to change the title of the bug!
authconfig-gtk was not installed but the command existed (and gave the glade error), also the shortcut existed on the menu. By installing the package the bug is fixed for me.
rpm -qf /usr/bin/authconfig-gtk says it does not belong to any rpm package. How come I had it without installing it?
I am sorry but I have no idea how could that happen. Unfortunately without a reproducer it is impossible to fix the problem. Please reopen the bug if you're able to reproduce the bug consistently.
That may need an other installation :(
Anyway if I install it on a system of friend of mine, I will test it. (I agree that the bugs should be reproducible)
