Description Göran Uddeborg 2006-03-14 05:12:09 EST
Description of problem:
In sysstem-config-bind, line 508 of RRGUI.py, there is a message about bad
characters in an hexadecimal IPv6 address.  But the error message claims all
ASCII letters (A-Z) should be valid.  This is incorrect, only characters in the
range A-F are valid.  (The actual check in the code a few lines above is
correct.)  The ranges in the error message should be corrected.

Thanks - sorry for the typo. Fixed in CVS - will go into next version (4.0.0-42+).
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-09-21 22:15:11 EDT
Closing bugs in MODIFIED state from prior Fedora releases. If this bug persists
in a current Fedora release (such as Fedora Core 5 or later), please reopen and
set the version appropriately.
Comment 3 Göran Uddeborg 2006-09-24 06:33:18 EDT
It is still there when I look:

server2$ rpm -q system-config-bind
server2$ sed -n 508p /usr/share/system-config-bind/RRGUI.py
            s.dialog.gui.modalError(s.dialog.dialog,_('Invalid IPv6 Address "%s"
contains invalid hex digits : only [0-9] [A-Z] [a-z] allowed.') % hex)
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2006-10-17 07:28:26 EDT
fixed in rawhide now.
