Description of problem:
After a full fresh install of Phoebe 2 beta, NTP information was never requested
during installation, but is assumed and not checked in firstboot.  This causes
the attached firstboot traceback due to null reference. 

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


How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Full install of Phoebe 2, custom setup, default packages plus the RH config
packages
2.First time coming up, firstboot is run, causing the fault

    

Actual Results:  traceback, followed by firstboot aborting that step and
continuing on.

Expected Results:  no traceback

Additional info:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 153, in __init__
    vbox, eventbox = module.launch()

Was this a text install?  Hard Drive, CDROM, NFS, FTP, HTTP?


Comment 2 Warren Togami 2003-01-25 06:55:14 UTC
Boot floppy or cdrom boot?
