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)
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):
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.
