Description David Lawrence 2002-07-24 18:55:08 UTC
Description of Problem:
When removing a user from the system, currently it just does it without
confirmation. A dialog should pop up asking if you really want to delete the

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

We really ought to get this in.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-08-16 21:56:44 UTC
Sorry, there was no time for this release.  I will try to get this for the next
release.  Deferring for now.

Comment 4 Mike McLean 2003-01-16 02:42:28 UTC
It would be really nice to merge the fixes from bug 78620 and bug 78619 into a
single confirmation dialog with checkboxes for deleting the user's group (if
appropriate) and home directory.

Something like 
|            DELETING user xxxxxx             |
|    [  ]  Delete private group xxxxxx        |
|    [  ]  Delete home directory /home/xxxxxx |
|                                             |
|     +--------+         +----------+         |
|     | Cancel |         |  Delete  |         |
|     +--------+         +----------+         |

Maybe with a little extra warning text.

I think the behavior noted in bug #78620 should be acceptable.  Please reopen if
it is not.

Basically, it deletes the group if the user is the only user in that group.  It
does this automatically without the need for a dialog box, so the existing
dialog box about deleting the home directory should suffice. 
redhat-config-users-1.1.4-1 should have the new behavior.

Comment 7 Brent Fox 2003-06-02 20:01:02 UTC
Try with redhat-config-users-1.1.9-1 and see if that is better.  Confirmation
dialogs should appear now on deleting users and groups.

Verified, at least with RHEL 3 these changes are added.
