Description Arthur Pemberton 2007-04-24 23:54:42 EDT
Description of problem:
system-config-date crashes when there is not ntp server list

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: I have only been able to try this on one machine so far

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora 6
2. do not setup ntp servers
3. run system-config-date (from a console)
Actual results:
program crashes due to programming error

Expected results:
program starts up and allows me to configure ntp

Additional info:

* problem stems from getNtpServers() in dateBackend.py, it fails to return a
tuple if self.ntpFile evaluates to False

This issue should be fixed in 1.8.12-2.fc6 which should hit mirrors soon.

system-config-date-1.8.12-2.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
