Can someone please explain to me why this bug is closed? It fur sure isn't fixed!
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2003-10-14 12:46:27 EDT
should be fixed in 0.1.4

My grub.conf
Comment 4 Daniel Malmgren 2003-10-16 11:56:35 EDT
Nope. I get the exact same error in 0.1.4 (except now it's line 22 instead of 13).
I don't know if it's something with my grub.conf? Attaching file...
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2003-10-27 08:16:22 EST
should be fixed with 0.1.5
Comment 6 Daniel Malmgren 2003-10-28 11:16:24 EST
It's not exactly the same fault this time, but I guess I'll just reopen this bug
anyway. In 0.1.5 I get this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-boot/redhat-config-boot.py", line 22, in ?

Comment 8 Need Real Name 2003-10-29 08:37:15 EST
i get the same error after upgrading to 0.1.5-1
Comment 9 Max Kanat-Alexander 2003-10-29 17:32:48 EST
Do you have the most recent rhpl? My having an old rhpl made this sort of thing
happen to me for a while.

> Do you have the most recent rhpl?

As I said above, I have the most recent versions of everything that
could possibly be relevant.

My rhpl version right now is 0.121-1.
Comment 12 Harald Hoyer 2003-10-30 07:42:08 EST
ok... famous last words: 0.1.6 should fix it :)

redhat-config-boot-0.1.6-1 unhandled exception

Got further this time. A box actually opened up and I was able to choose a item
from the grub.conf file to work on and one I did and selected ok it crashed
with a unhandled exception I saved the output to the file that is attached.

Output of 'strace -o strace.out redhat-config-boot'

Attaching the output of 'strace -o strace.out redhat-config-boot' for version

Comment 16 Harald Hoyer 2003-11-06 05:05:43 EST
no more strace please... the exception is enough to locate the problem :)
Comment 17 Harald Hoyer 2003-11-06 05:10:38 EST
