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,
File "/usr/share/system-config-firewall/fw_gui.py", line 1264, in run

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
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

Good suggestion Loran. I applied your fix and it works fine now.
system-config-firewall-1.0.11-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
