Description of problem:
Installed complete updates as of today.  Then, later, while exploring the system
I attempted to open the Internet Configuration Wizard.  This led immediately to
the following traceback information, and
asked me to file a bug against refhat-config-network:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/sbin/internet-druid", line 1400, in ?
    window = mainDialog('druid')
  File "/usr/sbin/internet-druid", line 238, in __init__

  File "/usr/sbin/internet-druid", line 473, in on_deviceAddButton_clicked
    interface = NewInterfaceDialog()

    iface = iface_creator (self.toplevel, do_save = None, druid = self.druid)

    self.hwDruid = ethernetHardware(self.toplevel)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open System Settings.
2.Double-click Internet Connection Wizard.

Actual Results:  Traceback (consistent)

Expected Results:  The wizard ought to work.

Additional info:

I'm unsure about my network setup.  It's a NetGear MR314 wireless router
connected to a DSL ( withmy laptop (Win2K), my Linux i386
box, and another Win 98 PC (all hard-wired with CAT-5 cabling).  The file
/etc/hosts doesn't appear correct to me, but I don't know what it
should look like.  It says:

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.	localhost.localdomain	dhcppc3	localhost.localdomain	dhcppc2	localhost.localdomain	dhcppc3	user-jetpa4xt33	C57972-M	

0.2 is my Linux box; 0.3 is the Win 98 box; the laptop does not show.
When the bug first appeared, the first line in this file was dhcppc1; I opened
Network Configuration in the System Settings file, and tried to delete the first
two entries; the result was a change to the /etc/hosts file as shown

assigned to proper component/folks

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2002-11-13 14:33:02 UTC
hmm, you probably should fix /etc/hosts by hand

Comment 3 Craig Margenau 2002-11-23 15:51:27 UTC
I get the same exact bug, using Linux 7.3 Pro w/ all the latest patches.  I use
a LinkSys Ethernet Adapter and a LinkSys Wireless Access Point Router w/ 4-port
switch, Model# BEFW11S4.  My Linux box is plugged directly into this Router, not
using the Wireless feature.
