Description of problem:
After upgrading FC2 from 2.6.5-1.358 (default) to 2.6.6 to work around
ndiswrapper issue, system-config-network crashes whenever launched.
Summary: TBf3ca2c97 NC_functions.py:54:kernel_version:ValueError:
unpack list of wrong size
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/system-config-network-gui", line 183, in ?
from netconfpkg import NC_functions
line 61, in ?
File "<string>", line 1, in ?

line 54, in kernel_version
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size
Local variables in innermost frame:
version: #1 Fri May 21 13:54:29 EDT 2004
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade kernel to 2.6.6 (from kernel.org)
2. use .config from 2.6.5-1.358 with virtually no changes
3. ensure 4KSTACKS is disabled in .config (reason for kernel upgrade)
4. launch system-config-network
Actual Results: 1. Prompts for root passwd
2. Crashes (trace in description)
Expected Results: 1. Prompt for root passwd
2. Launch system-config-network
Utility worked fine under FC1 and FC2 before upgrading kernel.
I'm unable to duplicate this with a 2.6.6 kernel.
Looking at the code it seems to be because you added an extra "-" in
the release and the config tools don't expect that to happen.
That was it...
Recompiled without the dashes in the extra version and everything
returned to perfect condition.
Thanks for the help...
