redhat-config-network tool crash dump (735 bytes, text/plain)

Description Rodolfo A. Jofre 2002-10-18 22:20:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
I have 2 NICs. The first is embedded in the motherboard, and it was recognized
at once, as an Intel Etherexpress Pro 100B. Later, I installed the second NIC (a
very generic PCI NIC, with a Davicom chip). It was also recognized on the fly,
but I did not configure its network parameters.
After that I needed to take it out of the computer, so I tried to delete it from
the system by deleting it using the RedHat-config-network tool. Everything
worked fine until the moment I hit the "Close" or the "Apply" buttons. to save
the changes. Then it comes the crash:

There is "exception occured" message, and the window says what I include attached.

This happens when using English as the default language and also with spanish
(as a default or not)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log as root 
2.Open the Start here icon
3.Go to Network Settings.
4. Delete the second NIC
5.Comfirm it.
6. Hit the apply or the close button
7. Answer Yes to the question: Do you want to save your changes?
8. Voila! There you have it.

Actual Results:  Ditto. I could not even save the dumping to the file I wanted,
but it only saves it to /tmp/dump. Unless I delete it or rename it, the dumping
routine has problems too.

Expected Results:  The second ethernet card should have been removed from the

Can we get a link to take care of this?:
pyxf86config >= 0.3.2 is needed by rhpl-0.74-2

I searched for pyxf86config, but only found the version that I already have.  

Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2003-03-20 16:16:14 UTC
hmm... you may take the rawhide version of it, or try to install with nodeps

Comment 10 Jeremy Young 2003-03-20 19:31:19 UTC
Running the two RPMs with --nodeps successfully solved my iteration of this

I had two network cards, when I tried to change information about either card
when both cards were installed as devices, the program crashed.  

Now it works as it should.  Updates immediately, and the routing tables are correct.

Redhat Version 9

I can'y save information after I changed the settings of my network!

Command 'netconfig' can work successfully and the informations are 
saved.But 'red-hat-config-network' will course Python error,and the program get 
into crash.

I once used Redhat version 8 on this computer,in that version I can change 
network settings at my will and connect to Internet by ADSL service.

I installed rp-pppoe-3.5-3.i386 and rp-pppoe-gui-3.5-3.i386 ,the GUI also can't 
receive my settings.The sheet event do not echo the charactors I typed.

This made me upset many days!!
