Comment 1 Mikael Hallendal 2002-08-19 22:11:06 UTC
Oops, filed this against the wrong component, moving

Comment 2 Barry K. Nathan 2002-08-21 07:34:29 UTC
I'm seeing this too. up2date 2.9.46-1 (what (null) installed)

Comment 3 Barry K. Nathan 2002-08-21 07:35:53 UTC
Oh, I forgot to mention, manually su'ing to root then running up2date-config
doesn't ask for the password (obviously) but still returns to the command prompt
silently and with no visible results or messages.

Comment 4 Barry K. Nathan 2002-08-21 09:48:26 UTC
I just found that running "up2date --configure" instead of "up2date-config" does
the trick.

It looks like there's a /usr/bin/up2date-config which links to consolehelper,
but there's no other up2date-config...

Comment 5 Barry K. Nathan 2002-08-21 10:06:08 UTC
IMO consolehelper should be giving some kind of indication to the user that
up2date-config doesn't actually exist. I've filed bug 72127 for that.

Comment 6 Adrian Likins 2002-08-21 19:49:36 UTC
up2date-config was only part of the up2date-gnome package.
It is now in both. But then, that should of changed in
the 2.9.30's or so...

Seems to be a packaging issue...

Also the menu item is gone now as well (see #72146)

Lots of stuff that should be in the "up2date" package
is in the up2date-gnome package. How bizzare

fixing now...

Comment 7 Adrian Likins 2002-08-21 20:20:01 UTC
yup, package issue...

up2date-config wasnt makeing it into the right package

should be fixed in 2.9.50
