Description of problem:
After a full fresh install of Phoebe 2 beta, NTP information was never requested
during installation, but is assumed and not checked in firstboot.  This causes
the attached firstboot traceback due to null reference. 

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Full install of Phoebe 2, custom setup, default packages plus the RH config
2.First time coming up, firstboot is run, causing the fault


Actual Results:  traceback, followed by firstboot aborting that step and
continuing on.

Expected Results:  no traceback

Additional info:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 153, in __init__
    vbox, eventbox = module.launch()
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/date.py", line 75, in launch
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/date.py", line 64, in setupScreen
    self.datePage = date_gui.datePage(self.dateBackend)
  File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/date_gui.py", line 171, in __init__
    ntpServer = socket.gethostbyaddr(ntpServerIP)[0]
TypeError: gethostbyaddr() argument 1 must be string, not None

Was this a text install?  Hard Drive, CDROM, NFS, FTP, HTTP?
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2003-01-25 01:55:14 EST
Boot floppy or cdrom boot?
