Description Rob Kearey 2002-05-23 22:47:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; MSIE 6.999; Windows ME)

Description of problem:
No entries exist for printconf-tui in /etc/pam.d/ or /etc/security/console.apps

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1 - Server install of 7.3 (ie, no X)
2 - log in as root, or su thereto
3 - run printconf-tui

Actual Results:  printconf-tui segfaults

Expected Results:  printconf-tui should run

Additional info:

Problem fixed by 

cp /etc/pam.d/authconfig /etc/pam.d/printconf-tui
cp /etc/security/console.apps/authconfig /etc/security/console.apps/printconf-tui

Looks like bugs in both printconf and userhelper. Userhelper is just a
hinderance on X-less systems.

Mad propz to nalin for pointing out the fix.

printconf-tui segfault - strace
Comment 2 Rob Kearey 2002-05-23 23:11:07 EDT
Forgot to mention it's printconf-0.3.77-1, though that should be obvious enough :)
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-05-24 02:49:05 EDT
The PAM files are in the -gui package by mistake.  Fixed in CVS.
Comment 4 Bob Cochran 2002-07-04 00:40:25 EDT
So you need 4 files in all for printconf-tui to work without segfaulting?
Specifically these:

Yes.  Fixed package is 0.4.6-1 (although it will be easier for you to grab 
those files, or just install printconf-gui).
