Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 211773
Exception popup: TBa9c752cb ConfPAP.py:85:initvars:IndexError
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:31:34 EDT
Description of problem: TBa9c752cb ConfPAP.py:85:initvars:IndexError: list
index out of range
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.3.30
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run "system-control-network" as root or as a normal user
2. enter password if prompted
Actual results: Exception popup with request to save log and submit bug report
Expected results: network configuration GUI starts
Additional info: I have several copies of the same error over the past few
months, but now I can't connect to my provider using the wvdial method (kppp
ppp+chat is working) so I'd like to review the configuation. The system is a
fairly minimal install on a dual PPro 200, regularly updated (so just started
using the 2.6.18 kernel) and used as a firewall for my main machine.

dump from bug error popup
please check /etc/ppp/chap-secrets and /etc/ppp/pap-secrets, if they contain garbage
Those files were dated Nov., 2004.
They contain exactly "garbage", but the same data saved 2 different ways -- one
line with (double) quotes, the other without, but with a special character in
the password escaped with a "\". I deleted all the entries and was able to run
configure to generate new entries, which use the format with quotes.
