Description of problem:
On a system where network configuration has not been done and so
hostname is "localhost" and where there is no network card, although
a
 dial-up connection to the internet was active at the tim
e, executing (as root) redhat-config-network resulted in the following dump.

    hardwarelist = getHardwareList()
  File
"/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/NCHardwareList.py",
line 259, in getHardwareList
    HWList.load()
  File
"/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/NCHardwareList.py",
line 118, in load
    wvdial = ConfSMB('/etc/wvdial.conf')
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/ConfSMB.py",
line 86, in __init__
    merge=1, create_if_missing=1)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/Conf.py", line 180, in
__init__
    self.read()
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/ConfSMB.py",
line 91, in read
    self.initvars()
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/ConfSMB.py",
line 108, in initvars
    vars = self.next_entry()
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/ConfSMB.py",
line 137, in next_entry
    vars = self.get_entry()
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/ConfSMB.py",
line 123, in get_entry
    vars[1] = joinfields(vars[1:len(vars)], '=')               
IndexError: list assignment index out of range

Results are similar with up2date, rhn_register, etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.execute tool without network config
2.

Can you try the 0.9-1 version at http://people.redhat.com/teg/neat/ ?

Comment 2 GeoffLeach 2001-09-08 19:55:18 UTC
Did that.  No joy.  BTW, this is _with_ the hostname set correctly -- or well
enough, at least, without network config!

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2001-09-09 10:51:24 UTC
i cannot reproduce it, Could you please send me this file /etc/wvdial.conf. thanks

Comment 4 Ngo Than 2001-09-09 10:59:14 UTC
ok, i'am sure that you have a wrong /etc/wvdial.conf, please remove this file
and try to start redhat-config-network again. It should work

You should never edit /etc/wvdial.conf, if you don't know the syntax of it!


Comment 5 GeoffLeach 2001-09-10 15:11:31 UTC
Removing my version of the file (see below) resolved the problem.  However, as
You this file works fine on both 6.1 and on the beta, I must say that You should
[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyS0
Baud = 115200
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 S11=55 +FCLASS=0

#New Pppd

[Dialer slb2]

[Dialer cd]
# This is a direct line
#Phone = 555-5555
Phone = 555-5555

never _parse_ /etc/wvdial.conf, if you don't know the syntax of it!






Comment 6 Ngo Than 2001-09-20 21:18:08 UTC
don't break if /etc/wvdial.conf is not sane.
