Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 486004
System-config-services stalls -- all service items are insensitive to any changes.
Last modified: 2009-02-18 10:23:18 EST
Description of problem:
System-config-services does not work. When started, the gui shows up, the list of services is loaded, but the application stalls right after that (the cursor is moving, and everything is greyed-out). No changes can be made to any service.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'system-config-services' from the menu or CLI (as a regular user or root)
The application stalls.
I should be able to change the settings of the services.
System-config-services stalls irrespective of whether it is run by a regular user or root. No settings can be changed, the menu works, though.
Do you have pure-ftpd installed?
Yes I have. Can this be the cause of the problem?(In reply to comment #1)

Yes it is -- pure-ftpd can be run both as a SysV and xinetd service. This is a duplicate of bug #467871, there you can also find some background info.
