Description Will Woods 2005-08-30 18:48:41 EDT
When using redhat-config-netboot-0.1.26-1_EL3, pressing F1 for help (or using
the Help menu item) will result in an error message saying:

The file /usr/share/doc/redhat-config-netboot-0.1.14/index.html cannot be found.
Please check the location and try again.

This path is set in redhat-config-netboot.py as:
page = "file:///usr/share/doc/"+ PROGNAME + "-" + VERSION + "/index.html"

VERSION is set in netboot_util.py:
VERSION = "0.1.14"

This needs to be changed to match the version of the package.
Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2005-08-31 14:38:00 EDT
The netboot_util.py was meant to be generated from automake + autoconf, but was
not being so.
The build of {redhat,system}-config-netboot now uses automake + autoconf, and
generates the correct VERSION string.
This bug is now fixed with versions:
Do you want me to respin the 484 and 486 errata with these new packages ?
