Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 994596
Authconfig withholds error messages
Last modified: 2015-03-02 00:27:59 EST
Description of problem:
Authconfig doesn't output any error messages in some error conditions.
In particular, AuthInfo.write() discards any exception information and simply
returns a value indicating failure. As a result, authconfig doesn't output any
error message and only returns unsuccessful exit status, which can easily be
overlooked when executing interactively. Even if it is noticed, there is
nothing suggesting what happened.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Execute "authconfig --updateall --enablesssd --enablesssdauth" (which fails on RHEL7)
Error output, for example:
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/etc/dconf/db/distro.d/10-authconfigymWW9B'
The attached patch fixes the problem.
