Description dkaplan 2001-07-20 20:32:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1)

Description of problem:
I have the same firewall configuration on my laptop and my desktop -
identical files.  On my laptop, on starting firewall-config, it shows the
current firewall configuration with no problem.  On the desktop, it opens
in blank and give the following warning in the xterm:

Xlib:  extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0".

I have checked all of the library dependencies for firewall-config and the
two computers are identical.  I am running firewall-config-0.95-2.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install an correctly formatted /etc/sysconfig/ipchains file.
2.run firewall-config

Actual Results:  nothing is shown in the list of ipchains

Expected Results:  it should show all of the current settings.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2001-07-23 05:27:22 EDT
you should also copy /etc/sysconfig/firewall.

The warning Xlib:  extension "RENDER" missing on display ":0.0" is from the 
XFree86 server and can be ignored.
