Description Nigel Smith 2002-08-24 07:24:24 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; T312461; .NET 
CLR 1.0.3705)

Description of problem:
Just installed 'null' and running 'up2date' for the first time on this PC.  It 
goes into the screens to re-register on the 'RedHat Network'.  By mistake, I 
typed the wrong 'User Name', for my existing account.  (Password and email 
address entered ok)
On submitting the screen, the program crashed with this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 773, in ?
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 494, in main
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 1047, in main
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 997, in run
    result = win.run()
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 257, in run
    valid = self.validateFields()
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 219, in validateFields
    except up2dateErrors.ValidationError, e:
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'ValidationError'

When I re-run the program, and entered a valid username ( & password & email !) 
it worked with no problem as expected.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install null on new PC
2.Run up2date for fiest time
3.Re-Register existing account, but enter wrong username.

Actual Results:  Crash.

Expected Results:  Not crash.
