From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
ksconfig does not start up for me.

How reproducible:

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 ?
NameError: select

Expected Results:  configurator startup

Additional info:

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
might help.

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?
