Description of problem:
After a completely fresh install upon the first boot, firstboot fails. A window
with firstboot.py in the tital pops up and reads:
Traceback (most recent call list):
File "/usr/share/fistboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 153, in __init__
vbox, eventbox = module.launch()
File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/data.py", line 75, in launch
File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/data.py", line 64, in setUpScreen
self.dataPage = data_gui.datePage(self.dataBackend)
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-data/data_gui.py", line 171, in __init__
ntpServer = socket.gethostbyaddr(ntpServerIP)
TypeError: gethostbyaddr() argument 1 must be string, not None
Since there is a problem with the Data and Time module,
Red Hat Setup Agent will not load this module and
will attempt to run the remaining modules.
Please file a bug [...]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Is there something about ntp versions in the installer? I don't
think I've selected anything.
Actual Results: Above message in a window
Expected Results: firstboot GUI
No, nothing wrong with ntp. It was a bug on my part in redhat-config-date.
