Comment 2 David Cantrell 2006-10-04 00:01:12 EDT
I committed a fix for this earlier today.  I discovered I had forgotten to
define the handleBroadCastError() function in network_text.py (did the ipv6
changes in network_gui.py first), and that was getting called because the
network and broadcast address calculation was failing on big endian systems. 
Also fixed that today.

A new anaconda was submitted for building at the end of the workday on Oct 3, so
the fixes should be present in the Oct 4 tree composition for rawhide.
