Description David Wood 2007-11-15 11:09:11 EST
system-config-firewall is crashing on startup with the following messages:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-firewall/system-config-firewall.py", line 41,
in <module>
  File "/usr/share/system-config-firewall/fw_gui.py", line 1264, in run
  File "/usr/share/system-config-firewall/fw_gui.py", line 841, in readFile
  File "/usr/share/system-config-firewall/fw_gui.py", line 1192, in loadDefaults
    if device.Alias and dev.Alias != "":
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'Alias'

I have two F8 systems, one of which this works fine on.  Could this have
anything to do with the fact that the failing system has an aliased Ethernet
connection (eth0 and eth0:1) so it can have two static IP addresses to work on
different networks.

Version-Release number of selected component: system-config-firewall-1.0.8-3.fc8

i've encountered the same problem on my F8 (same

the line 1192 in "/usr/share/system-config-firewall/fw_gui.py"
> if device.Alias and dev.Alias != "":
seems to contain an error and should be changed into
> if device.Alias and device.Alias != "":
