Description Tammy Fox 2002-12-10 17:31:48 UTC
It would be more consistent with the existing tools to have the authconfig (or
redhat-config-auth per bug #72015) command auto detect whether or not X is
running and start the appropriate version (text-based or gtk-based).

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2004-12-07 16:45:36 UTC
It works exactly like this using system-config-authentication in the
current releases.
