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):
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
Expected Results: no traceback
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)
TypeError: gethostbyaddr() argument 1 must be string, not None
Was this a text install? Hard Drive, CDROM, NFS, FTP, HTTP?
Boot floppy or cdrom boot?
