Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 88198
Query (Root Password dialogue) Cancel Button gives unknown exit code
Last modified: 2006-02-21 13:52:31 EST
Description of problem:
In Gnome, the "Query" dialogue which comes up when running something from
the System Settings menu that needs root privleges like "Display" (or any of the
other 'redhat-config' utilities) has two buttons, one for "Okay" (if the
password has been entered), the other for "Cancel". If the "Cancel" button is
clicked, an "Error" dialogue will pop up diplaying the text "Unknown exit code.".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Click cancel when asked for the root password.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Gnome, click on the Red Hat menu icon.
2. Select the "System Settings" sub menu.
3. Select "Display" or anything else that requires root access.
4. Click the "Cancel" button instead of entering the password.
An Error box will pop up with an "Okay" button and the text "Unknown exit
Originally thought when clicking the "Cancel" button, the Query dialogue
would close with no other input.
Not sure as to what else affects this, like if the Query dialogue is just
one dialogue for all utilities that require root or if each utility has it's own
Query dialogue. I've tried it on redhat-config-xfree86, redhat-config-users,
redhat-config-samba, and redhat-config-date.
This is basically a dup of bug #75834, although this one shows the exact correct
error present in Red Hat Linux 9 ("Unknown exit code."). This was introduced
sometime between usermode 1.65 in the third public beta and 1.67 in the release.
The error-on-cancel problem appears fixed in usermode 1.68 in rawhide.

I think this should be marked as a dupe of 75834, not 75384! :)
