Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72250
kprinter hangs on wrong username/password
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:48 EDT
Description of Problem:
RedHat 7.3.94 (Null).
When I started kprinter as user to add a new CUPS-printer, everything was fine
until username/password dialog. The username was already filled in - and
accidentaly I gave a wrong password. Then kprinter was hanging - had to kill
it. The following line was written repeatedly to /var/log/messages:
aug 22 09:24:01 opuntia cups(pam_unix): authentication failure; logname=
uid=0 euid=0 tty= ruser= rhost= user=inger
I think this should be handeled in a better way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have tried twice - with same result.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kprinter as user
2. Add printer
3. On username/password dialog, give a wrong password
Kprinter is hanging - cups is repeatedly writing to /var/log/messages
a message about wrong username/password - and possibility to correct it.
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at
Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks.
If this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release, please
open a new bug with the relevant information.
Closing as CANTFIX.
