Description of problem:
I've upgraded my FC1 installation to FC2 test 3. Now
as I run system-config-network and try to save the
changes (say I add a entry the hosts file) a warning
dialog pops up with the following text in it:
Error saving configuration!
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: '//etc/sysconfig/
Though the warning indicates that the configuration wasn't
saved it turns out that it is indeed saved!
The file '/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lo.rpmsave'
is present and is a broken symbolic link like this:
ifcfg-lo.rpmsave -> ../networking/ifcfg-lo
I guess this file was left by the upgrade process so maybe
this is not really a system-config-network problem, but the
fact that system-config-network says an error occured when
there was none made me post this bugreport.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an invalid symlink in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

add a new entry to hosts file

Actual Results: A warning box pops up saying that it failed to save the
configuration, but the configuration is saved.
Expected Results: Should not complain that it failed to save the
