Description Alexander Todorov 2011-10-26 15:49:39 UTC
Description of problem:

During rhn_register form the command line it fails with this :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_register", line 76, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/rhncli.py", line 74, in run
    sys.exit(self.main() or 0)
  File "/usr/sbin/rhn_register", line 58, in main
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 1272, in main
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 1220, in run
    win = self.windows[index](self.screen, self)
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/tui.py", line 678, in __init__
    hardware_text += hw['ipaddr'] + "  "
<type 'exceptions.TypeError'>: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'NoneType' and 'str'

I suspect this is due to my computer having issues with network connectivity. It failed 2 times, then I was able to get past the hardware info screen (but it failed to connect to RHN) and on the next run it failed again with this traceback.

This is on a freshly installed 6.1 Workstation system.

Setting devel ack -- fix is in Spacewalk master, e13f9db192792fe9501b884c5a595cccc887ede6.

Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2011-11-24 14:55:22 UTC
For QA: this should likely happen if the client is IPv6-only machine.

Comment 3 Miroslav Suchý 2012-01-09 17:25:27 UTC
This will be fixed as side effect of bug 767679.
Leaving for QA to test.
