From Bugzilla Helper:User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3; Linux)Description of problem:I'm running neat remotely, ie using ssh. I'm trying to add a CIPE connection to the remote computer. Everything goes well until I save the new configuration, whereing neat crashes. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):The one shipped with psycheHow reproducible:AlwaysSteps to Reproduce:1. log into the remote computer using ssh 2. start neat, supply root password if necessary3. add, CIPE, set everything, apply4. on the main neat screen, press apply5. neat crashes and tells me to report this to bugzilla Actual Results: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 496, in on_applyButton_clicked self.save() File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 319, in save self.saveDevices() File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 326, in saveDevices devicelist.save() File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/NCDeviceList.py", line 118, in save dev.save() File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/NCDevice.py", line 346, in save self.Cipe.save(conf) File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/NCCipe.py", line 158, in save conf.write() File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/NCCipe.py", line 89, in write Conf.Conf.write(self) File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/Conf.py", line 278, in write self.file = open(self.filename, 'w', -1)IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/etc/cipe/options.cipcb0'Expected Results: It should have saved the new setup, ie with CIPE and exited cleanly. Additional info:Nothing that I can think of. Email me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
This problem can be solved by creating a dummy /etc/cipe/options.cipcb0 file. I don't think it was the file missing as much as the dir not being present that caused the problem. I've set cipe up on several computers and this is the first one that had the problem.
please install the cipe rpm first on that machine
