Description of problem:
Nothing happens when I click on "Red Hat Network Configuration" in the menu.
Running /usr/bin/up2date-config from the command line shows the "Input the
password" dialog but then it exits.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the "Red Hat Network Configuration" item in the menu.
2. Or, type up2date-config on the command line.
Actual Results: Nothing happens
Expected Results: Get to the configuration dialog
Oops, filed this against the wrong component, moving
I'm seeing this too. up2date 2.9.46-1 (what (null) installed)
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.
I just found that running "up2date --configure" instead of "up2date-config" does
It looks like there's a /usr/bin/up2date-config which links to consolehelper,
but there's no other up2date-config...
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.
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
yup, package issue...
up2date-config wasnt makeing it into the right package
should be fixed in 2.9.50
