Description of problem:
When I try to start it as a normal user, there are 3 messages that say:
[Errno 13] Permission denied: '//etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles//default/hosts'!
[Errno 13] Permission denied:
Please start redhat-config-network with root permissions once!
If I start it as root, everything starts fine.
The launcher doesn't ask for a root password when is executed by a normal user.
After I run it as root, the same errors keep appearing but at least it shows the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Menu - System Tools - Network Device Control as a normal user
redhat-control-network or redhat-config-network ???
If you start redhat-control-network as a normal user, it should display all
interfaces it can read...
redhat-config-network should be run as root in every case...
The problem is in redhat-control-network as a normal user.
Someone at the mailing list asked me if I had /usr/sbin in my path. I don't
have /usr/sbin at all in my path
here is what prints printenv
I tried to put /usr/sbin in my path and everything is fine.
I'm not running it right now, so please tell me if you need more info
