RHEL ES v3 - GNOME/KDE "Create New User" dialog box freeze
Posted on 2005-04-22
Strange problem, that I haven't seen on the other Linux machines that I've set up:
Using either GNOME or KDE, I start the "Red Hat User Manager" util.
I the Add User icon... system works just fine, new user is created (though I do have to click "refresh" to see the new user, which I don't have to do on any other Linux systems).
I click the Add User icon again, to add another user. The "Create New User" box opens, but freezes. I can only click the X in the upper right -- no other fields are active, and the mouse cursor remains a rotating hourglass.
I have done all the Red Hat Network updates, according to the Red Hat Network Alert Notification Tool/up2date utility.
What do I do now? I don't want this machine to act like this when delivered to the client. Is it possible that the configuration files that are manipulated by this utility are corrupt? If so, what files should I be looking at?
