Additional info:
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-09-01 04:11:58 EDT
seems like the rpm db could not be opened.. hmm..
Comment 2 John Yau 2003-09-01 11:14:50 EDT
actually yes...I haven't been able to use rpmdb or rpm from the shell until I 
added this

export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5

to the environment.  But redhat-config-network still exhibits the same 
behavior even after the addition.

This is where I found the info to add to the environment

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2003-09-01 11:17:18 EDT
try this as root:
# LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 /usr/sbin/redhat-config-network
Comment 4 John Yau 2003-09-01 12:13:24 EDT
Okay... the rpmdb seems to be accessible now, but now I get complaints about

Error saving Configuration!
[Errno 2] No such file or directory:

when I try to activate a device.

A similar error about not being able to find the same file shows up in
rc.sysinit sequence at boot.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2003-09-02 05:29:10 EDT
update to 1.2.15 and the last error is gone..
