Description George N. White III 2006-10-22 12:03:12 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.

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2006-10-23 05:09:25 EDT
please check /etc/ppp/chap-secrets and /etc/ppp/pap-secrets, if they contain garbage
Comment 3 George N. White III 2006-10-23 17:25:17 EDT
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.
