Description Jason Haar 2009-05-03 22:52:40 EDT
Description of problem:

When you are changing your personal details, you are prompted to authenticate yourself. I'm set up for winbind accounts, and when I type in my password, I get "Unknown error" and sometimes "Domain Controller unreachable" - even though it is reachable. I'm on the corporate LAN via Ethernet - it's there! :-)

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


How reproducible:

every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.System->Preferences->About me
2.make change
3. type in password when prompted
Actual results:

"Unknown error" popup occurs.

Expected results:

should have worked

We are just running userinfo for that part, so the problem would be in the usermode package.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Thanks for your report.

libvirt does not support winbind accounts, so attempts to change the user information fail.

control-center 2.28 in Fedora 12 does not call userinfo any more, so these error messages don't appear in Fedora 12.

I'm sorry, make that "libuser" instead of "libvirt".
