Description akonstam 2002-10-09 20:25:23 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When you run redhat-config-users when you are using non MD% passwds and not
using shadow passwds the program crashes with the error:
/usr/share/redhat-config-users/redhat-config-users: line 4:  1363 Segmentation
fault      /usr/bin/python2.2 /usr/share/redhat-config-users/redhat-config-users.py

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1 run: redhat-config-users

Actual Results:  /usr/share/redhat-config-users/redhat-config-users: line 4: 
1363 Segmentation fault      /usr/bin/python2.2

Expected Results:  Opens gui window to allow adding and removing users

Additional info:

If you run redhat-config users with shadow passwds the gui opens and users
records can be manipulated but you get a warning:
(redhat-config-users.py:1007): Gtk-WARNING **:
/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.0/engines/libmetal.so: undefined symbol:
Which is also incorrect because the gtk_toggle_button_get_type does exist in the
library libmetal.so:
Comment 1 akonstam 2002-10-09 20:35:59 EDT
Tammy Fox asked me to include my /etc/sysconfig/i18n file which I forgot to do;
Comment 2 akonstam 2002-10-10 09:59:08 EDT
I now find that the warning:
redhat-config-users.py:1007): Gtk-WARNING **:
/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.0/engines/libmetal.so: undefined symbol:
occurs only when you login as a normal user and then su- to root

If you login as root then run redhat-config-users the warning is not generated.
I hope all this information is usefull because I find it confusing.
Comment 3 Tammy Fox 2002-10-10 10:54:44 EDT
/etc/sysconfig/i18n is supposed to be included on a different bug. Ignore
it for this one.
