Description of problem:
When I change hosts file from another linux red hat enterprise 5.2 version, system-config-network get a crash. This hosts file is working well
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.change /etc/hosts file from another linux red hat desktop older
2.I edit file, changing localhost, put local hostname
the network toll is keeping out order
I thing that hosts file has something that make software crash in linux red hat 5.3 version
This is a dupe of bug #492915
Check your /etc/hosts for invalid entries. `man hosts` to see what constitutes a valid entry.
then, why this file don't crash in older linux version, I check hosts file and didn't found wrong entries. I write ipaddress hostname, but I follow look in for diferences, because is sure that I have something wrong, but I don't understand, why in linux 5.2 is working whith the same hosts file
I'm not sure why but it looks like the entry is simply ignored in the older version. It's probably due to some change in behaviour of GtkCList -- looks like the earlier version accepted nulls.
In any case, if you see the bug #492915, the upstream version (and Fedora) has introduced proper validation. We need to port it back into RHEL in some form.
Closing as dupe, and bug #492915 is the one we're tracking and currently proposing to get fixed for RHEL-5.5.
Thanks & regards, Phil
