Description Matt Wilson 2003-02-13 05:26:48 UTC
How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. smb://carina/Corinna/scox/gnupro/src/COPYING 2. The Text view encountered an error and can't continue. You can choose another view or go to a different location. 3. Actual results: error Expected results: view file
Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-13 07:53:52 UTC
This was related to authentication. nautilus is authenticated, but there is no cross-process password cacheing, and the text view (and gedit which showed the same problem) are separate processes. Since text view and gedit doesn't handle auth callbacks they get auth-failed errors when opening the file. The strange thing about this case was that msw only had to press "ok" on the password dialog. If anon login was possible the dialog shouldn't even have poped up.

As commented in the dup. This needs to have some way to drop old authentications if you want to log in as a new user.

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks. Red Hat Linux 7.3 and Red Hat Linux 9 are no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. They are maintained by the Fedora Legacy project (http://www.fedoralegacy.org/) for security updates only. If this is a security issue, please reassign to the 'Fedora Legacy' product in bugzilla. Please note that Legacy security update support for these products will stop on December 31st, 2006. If this is not a security issue, please check if this issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release. If so, please change the product and version to match, and check the box indicating that the requested information has been provided. If you are currently still running Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 9, please note that Fedora Legacy security update support for these products will stop on December 31st, 2006. You are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which option may be right for you is available at http://www.redhat.com/rhel/migrate/redhatlinux/. Any bug still open against Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 9 at the end of 2006 will be closed 'CANTFIX'. Again, if this bug still exists in a current release, or is a security issue, please change the product as necessary. We thank you for your help, and apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point.
