different machines)

Comment 1 Thierry Coppey 2003-04-25 10:28:39 UTC
I've got the same problem, running with RedHat 9.0 using french version at
installation. maybe there is a problem with the localisation (for example an
array isn't initialized), check when "self.actionMenu" gets his children and if
they are set in the french config localisation.

Else why can't we use swat ?? the config file doesn't appears in /etc/xinetd.d/
even when it's manually installed (form the cd > swat-x > install) ? the install
runs normally but the service file doesn't appears.

Comment 2 Jean-Pascal Houde 2003-04-25 20:22:35 UTC
I'm also experiencing the same problem when starting redhat-config-samba, with a
French installation. As it seems to be a language-related bug, I'll try using US
locale next week...

Comment 3 Jean-Pascal Houde 2003-05-03 23:47:24 UTC
It works very well if I do a "export LC_ALL=en_US" before running

Comment 4 Stephane Jourdan 2003-05-05 14:29:19 UTC
In response to #3 : yes, you don't even need to change the whole system language
for it to run properly, a simple 
# lang=en_US redhat-config-samba

works for this one without changing durably anything.
