Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214164
system-config-nfs doesn't understand multi-lines

1. Add the following lines to your /etc/exports:
/home/ 10.1.1.0/255.255.252.0(rw,no_root_squash,sync) \
2. Launch system-config-nfs
3. Get an error like:
usr/share/system-config-nfs/mainWindow.py:82: DeprecationWarning: use gtk.UIManager
item_fac = gtk.ItemFactory(gtk.MenuBar, "<main>", accel_group)
self.on_add_button_clicked, None, 0)
None, self.on_properties_button_clicked, None, 1)
None, self.on_delete_button_clicked, None, 2)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-nfs/system-config-nfs.py", line 41, in ?
File "/usr/share/system-config-nfs/mainWindow.py", line 141, in __init__
self.exports = nfsBackend.NfsBackend()
File "/usr/share/system-config-nfs/nfsBackend.py", line 34, in __init__
File "/usr/share/system-config-nfs/nfsBackend.py", line 125, in parseFile
data = tokens
IndexError: list index out of range
I also filed bug 214163 about the latest version not being able to parse
fixed in Rawhide version 1.3.20
Note that there are quite some changes to the parser between RHEL4 and current
CVS, so I'd rather not try to backport these, but rebase and possibly disable
some of the newer options that aren't valid in RHEL4.
Steve, what's your stance on this?
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Engineering for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.
Red Hat does not currently plan to provide this change in a Red Hat Enterprise
Linux update release for currently deployed products.
With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in
response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative
approach when evaluating enhancements for inclusion in maintenance updates
for currently deployed products. The primary objectives of update releases
are to enable new hardware platform support and to resolve critical
However, Red Hat will further review this request for potential inclusion
in future major releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
