[abrt] system-config-network-1.6.1-1.fc14: NC_functions.py:31:<module>:ImportError: No module named ethtool
Last modified: 2012-08-16 15:55:39 EDT
abrt version: 1.1.13
Attached file: backtrace
cmdline: /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/system-control-network
reason: NC_functions.py:31:<module>:ImportError: No module named ethtool
release: Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
Accidentally upgraded from F11 to F14 using preupgrade-cli.
However, I suspect that this would also occur when upgrading from other OS. For some reason the
dependancy python-ethtool was not included in the upgrade.
yum -y install python-ethtool
installed the dependancy and fixed the issue.
How to reproduce
python-ethtool was not installed. Attempted to run system-config-network
Created an attachment (id=445789)
system-config-network in F11 was not dependent on python-ethtool.
In F14 system-config-network correctly requires python-ethtool and
'yum install system-config-network' pulls in also python-ethtool.
Reassigning to preupgrade.
However upgrading from F11 to F14 doesn't sound good to me.
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
