Description bman 2002-09-20 02:03:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809

Description of problem:
If a person misenters the data in the hosts box for a share, subsequent attempts
to start redhat-config-nfs will fail.  Once /etc/exports has has been corrected
the problem goes away.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a share
2.under hosts list something inapropriate like several IP addresses separated by
semicolons (don't ask)  The error can also be recreated with an extra newline at
the end of the /etc/exports file.
3.save and quit

Actual Results:  # redhat-config-nfs
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/redhat-config-nfs.py", line 29, in ?
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/mainWindow.py", line 141, in __init__
    self.exports = nfsBackend.NfsBackend()
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/nfsBackend.py", line 30, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-nfs/nfsBackend.py", line 88, in parseFile
    hostname, options = string.split(tokens[1], "(")
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

Expected Results:  the application should have started and let me correct the
host list.

Ok, I'll take a look at this.  My parser for /etc/exports could be much better
overall, so there's some work to be done here.

patch to nfsBackend to properly parse exports file

This bug is still present in RH9.  This patch seems to fix the problem.
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2003-09-03 18:15:14 EDT
Should be fixed with redhat-config-nfs-1.0.11 in Rawhide.
