Description Stef Walter 2012-04-30 08:37:31 EDT
Description of problem:

When passed invalid arguments authconfig does not return a non-zero exit code. Returning a zero exit code when not actually successful makes it difficult to use from scripts that need to manage PAM modules.

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

Name        : authconfig
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 6.2.1
Release     : 1.fc17
Size        : 1.9 M

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

# authconfig --enablewinbind
# echo $?

Actual results:

Above command hash zero exit code.

Expected results:

Should have a non-zero exit code.

This currently happens only in case the action option is missing. However it is clearly a bug and I fixed it in the upstream repository.

This looks liked in authconfig-6.2.3
