#35 closed defect (fixed)

Help not available in vuurmuur_conf when general configuration file does not exist.

Reported by: Tiger!P Owned by: Victor Julien
Priority: major Milestone: undecided
Component: vuurmuur-conf Version: 0.5.73 alpha 7
Keywords: helpfile vuurmuur_conf Cc:


When you start vuurmuur_conf when no general vuurmuur config file is available. Vuurmuur_conf will prompt the user to configure the system. This works, but when asking for help, it displays that the help file can not be found. It tries to use "/vuurmuur.hlp" instead of "/usr/share/vuurmuur/help/vuurmuur/vuurmuur.hlp".

I think this has to do that the init_config function does not initiate the helpfile_location. And since config_menu is called before the helpfile_location is initiated, it can not find the help file.

I think that the patch (vuurmuur_conf-enable_help.patch) fixes this issue. It could be that it only works, because it will use defaults when no vuurmuur_conf config file is available.
