Description Martin Faltesek 2003-02-28 08:32:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210

Description of problem:
When I attempt to delete a user, this (quite nice) tool hangs. 
After I kill it and restart it, it had indeed deleted
the user from /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow, but had not
removed the home dir despite that option being selected.

I have a pretty basic home setup without any external
network services (no nis, etc).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create user
2. try to delete user, click on 'ok' to remove user's dir.

Actual Results:  removed user from /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow, but gui hangs
and doesn't remove user dir.

Expected Results:  no hang.  remove user dir.

Try running the tool from the command line.  Then do the same set of steps and
see if any debug information is printed out on the command line when the program
hangs.  Any info there?

Comment 2 Martin Faltesek 2003-04-07 18:23:13 UTC
here's the info I collected by running on the command line:

desktop $ Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-users/", line 644, in
    rmrf (homeDir + '/' + file)
NameError: global name 'rmrf' is not defined
