Description Nikolai Kondrashov 2013-08-07 11:14:58 EDT
Description of problem:
"authconfig --updateall --enablesssd --enablesssdauth" on RHEL7 fails without
a message and with undocumented exit status 5.

With the patch from Bug 994596 applied, the following error message is output:
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/etc/dconf/db/distro.d/10-authconfigWkZ7KD'

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Execute "authconfig --updateall --enablesssd --enablesssdauth"

Actual results:
Stock authconfig: exit status 5
Authconfig with Bug 994596 patch applied outputs the following message in
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/etc/dconf/db/distro.d/10-authconfigWkZ7KD'

Expected results:
Exit status 0, no output.

Additional info:
Installing dconf fixes the problem, but it is not clear if that is a proper fix.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2013-08-07 11:34:59 EDT
Ray, what should we do with this? Either we could make authconfig to require dconf - which is less than ideal probably. Or we could ignore the error. As this is needed only for the smart card support in gdm, we could probably ignore it if dconf is not installed?
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2013-08-08 10:32:16 EDT
Tomas and I chatted about this today. The conclusion is authconfig will create the directories as necessary (and avoid creating the directories when possible)
Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2013-08-08 13:15:16 EDT
Please verify that this works now correctly.
