Description Daniel Malmgren 2003-08-29 06:39:15 EDT
Description of problem:
I can't seem to start redhat-logviewer.

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

How reproducible:
Happens every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the program
Actual results:
[root@Datorn rpm]# redhat-logviewer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-logviewer/redhat-logviewer.py", line 80, in ?
    LogViewerGui.LogViewerGui(width,height, allowConfigChanges,
  File "/usr/share/redhat-logviewer/LogViewerGui.py", line 162, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/redhat-logviewer/LogViewerGui.py", line 343, in
    logClassInstance = LogFileClass.LogFileClass(key)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-logviewer/LogFileClass.py", line 74, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/redhat-logviewer/LogFileClass.py", line 130, in read_log
    if alert == 0 and len(LogViewerGui.warningWords[0]) > 0:
IndexError: list index out of range

Additional info:
I don't think this is really a redhat-logviewer bug, since I get a very similar
result from the new redhat-config-boot. Don't know where else to report it though.

Versions of some installed rpm's:
Comment 1 Brian L Scipioni 2003-09-08 06:57:32 EDT
I get nearly the same bug - my error output from the cmdline:
unable to translate from iso-8859-1 utf-8
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-logviewer/redhat-logviewer.py", line 30, in ?

    sysClass = LogFileClass.LogFileClass("SYSLOG")

Comment 2 Tammy Fox 2003-09-08 16:36:55 EDT
The second traceback is not the same as the first. Brian, please file a
different bug and attached your /etc/sysconfig/redhat-logviewer file. 

Daniel, please attach your /etc/sysconfig/redhat-logviewer file to this bug.
Comment 3 Daniel Malmgren 2003-09-09 02:39:01 EDT

When I was about to attach the /etc/sysconfig/redhat-logviewer I discovered that
I also had a /etc/sysconfig/redhat-logviewer.rpmnew. Renamed that one to
redhat-logviewer and now it works.

Seems the difference between the files is that the line with WARNINGWORDS
doesn't exist in the old file. So now you know what was wrong. Maybe the program
should be able to operate without that line though?
Comment 4 Tammy Fox 2003-09-09 10:27:15 EDT
Yes. It should start without that line. I will fix it and get back to you.
Thanks for the report.
Comment 5 Tammy Fox 2003-09-10 22:28:27 EDT
Version 0.9.3-2 should appear in Rawhide shortly to fix this. I also fixed it so
it does not traceback of ALERTWORDS= doesn't exist in the prefs file.
