Description corby_rh 2002-05-19 18:42:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417

Description of problem:
I haven't installed ppp and wvdial and so I don't have a wvdial.conf file.  neat
depends on this file existing when I click "edit" for my real or my virtual
ethernet connection.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make sure you don't have a /etc/wvdial.conf file
2.Start neat
3.Select an ethernet interface and click "edit"

Actual Results:  I got a traceback (attached)

Expected Results:  neat should have permitted editing of the ethernet interface.

Additional info:

As a workaround, touch(1) the /etc/wvdial.conf file and neat no longer complains.

Most of the bugs reported have been removed, but as in every software change,
