Description Graham Leggett 2003-04-03 14:22:55 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030318

Description of problem:
- Run up2date on a brand new system.

- Select "existing user", and provide username and password.

- Move through wizard steps, until up2date tries to connect to rhn for the first
time.

- A popup window appears saying "problem with username".

- Sit back and wonder why on earth the lazy-ass programmer didn't mention WHAT
problem with the username.

- The account used has no free entitlements, which I assume is the problem, but
this should not prevent the registration procedure from completing, or from at
least a proper PARAGRAPH of explanatory text appearing saying exactly what is wrong.

- Did I mention that "problem with username" is one of the most STOOOPID error
messages I ever saw? (not as bad as "operation failed: success", but close).
