Description Marcel Svitalský 2003-02-05 10:41:06 UTC
Description of problem:

If user's proxyPassword is a number, up2date-config fails to start and generates
an error output from the Python interpreter.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.8.39


How reproducible: see Description.


Actual results: Error traceback from Python


Expected results: up2date-config started


Additional info:

I suggest to change /usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/configdlg.py, line 77, from
current:

self.xml.get_widget("proxyPasswordEntry").set_text(self.cfg.readEntry("proxyPassword"))

to:

self.xml.get_widget("proxyPasswordEntry").set_text(str(self.cfg.readEntry("proxyPassword")))

Comment 1 Marcel Svitalský 2003-02-05 11:31:40 UTC
Maybe I could add traceback too:    :-))

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date-config", line 781, in ?
    main()
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date-config", line 512, in main
    configdlg.main()

    self.setInitialValues()
