Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72644
"Network Error -12: host not found" occurs every first usage (dialup)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:11 EST
Description of Problem:
NOTE: dialup environment
No matter how long computer has been connected, the first time the applet is
clicked, I get a "Network Error -12: host not found" dialog. I then click
OK to acknowledge and the ? mark goes away immediately.... subsequent click
works as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every initial usage.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Start/click applet (either immediately after 1 or wait)
"Network Error -12: host not found" dialog box.
See attached png
rhn-applet logs in... or does what it does (maybe says... busy?)

Why is this still in a NEW state?
It's in a new state because it didn't got noticed in the change of
maintainership for that module ...
I can't reproduce this with 2.0.8, I have no dialup line available and
when using a network card with DHCP cliking in the interval where
the card is inserted but haven't yet received the IP address
the behaviour is the same as usual, i.e. the "available package"
window opens... Can you reproduce the problem with 2.0.8 ?
I no longer have dialup.
The behavior was simply that the applet would not check every so often that it
got the connection back.
I suspect this is bret's bug now. Reassigning.
CLOSING due to inactivity. Someone will gripe if need be.
