Description of problem:
ksconfig does not start up for me.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open terminal window
2. Issue 'ksconfig' or 'ksconfig &' or '/usr/sbin/ksconfig &' command
Actual Results: Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/share/ksconfig/ksconfig.py", line 387, in ?
Expected Results: configurator startup
It doesn't seem to matter wh I'm logged in as, root or mortal.
I just installed ksconfig (successfully) and tried to run it. When it
failed, I logged out and back in. When it failed again I rebooted. No
On request I can supply the output of 'rpm -1 -a' and anything else that
This problem has been reported before. A workaround is to go into the
/usr/share/ksconfig/ksconfig.py file and put a hash mark ("#") at the beginning
of line #387. Does that help?
