Description Todd Booher 2003-01-26 13:35:35 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030115

Description of problem:
On first boot after a clean install of phoebe beta 2 I received
the following trace back:

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

Now whenever I try to set the date or time in gnome it does nothing after
clicking on "Adjust Date & Time".  This happens either when I'm logged in as
root or a normal user.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login in as root
2. Right click on the date/time applet on the taskbar
3. Click on "adjust date & time"

Actual Results:  Nothing happens

Expected Results:  Date/Time applet should open to adjust those settings.
