Description Fulton Green 2003-07-24 01:13:27 UTC
Description of problem:
The graphical version of the network configuration client errors out while
loading an ADSL configuration file.  The error appears to be related to a
missing Python variable called "ConfDevice".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.3.1-1

How reproducible:
I'm assuming the problem is easily reproducible on a machine upgraded from RH 9
(Shrike), which was my case.  The error occurred while loading in an ADSL "cfg"
file created in either Shrike or Severn.  I haven't determined yet if a clean
install can manifest the problem.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch "Network" from the desktop bottom bar's "System Settings" menu.
2. Create (if necessary) the Ethernet entry that will be used by the ADSL entry
and save.  You may see a save error, but the information should still make it
out to disk.
3. Close the config app (if it didn't crash while saving) and restart.
Actual results:
An exception window pops up.

Expected results:
The app would appear with the previously saved configuration info.

Additional info:
I also noticed that bug #80343 dealt with the "ConfDevice" problem, but it also
looked as if it was going down a different path.

I just tried a fresh install.  Same error.

Comment 2 Tadej Janež 2003-07-29 07:45:56 UTC
I can also confirm this bug on a fresh Severn install.

Additionaly, the same thing happens with redhat-config-network-gui and
