Description A J Kroon 2003-09-28 11:42:27 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030211

Description of problem:
When I start neat, I switch to the DNS tab, enter one or more IP addresses and
click Apply, I get the following dump:


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 496, in on_applyButton_clicked
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 319, in save
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 326, in saveDevices
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/NCDeviceList.py",
line 145, in save
    os.write(fp2, ipc.network()+'/'+ipc.prefix()+" via "+route.Gateway+"\n")
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/ipcalc.py", line 60,
in network
    return re.match("NETWORK=(\S+)", text).groups()[0]
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'groups'


and neat crashes. The system asks me to file a bug using the text above. When I
then restart neat, the DNS settings have not changed.

This is the output of route -n:


Kernel IP routing table
