Description Mark Goodman 2003-04-01 22:32:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
I click System Settings and then Network.  The attached error message shows up.

I can always reproduce it on the same installation but I can't always reproduce
it on a different installation.

The obvious 'from gtk import *' to bring timeout_add into maindialog's namespace
is not there.  This problem goes away when I add 'timeout_add=gtk.timeout_add'
to maindialog.py.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Click the red hat.
2.  Click System Settings.
3.  Click Network.

or "from gtk import *" ... well, I know...

I've been able to duplicate this only when I use reiserfs as the root fs. 
Three installs with reiserfs had this issue, four installs with ext3 were 
fine. This was all done on the same machine, and with the same install discs. 
My first login to each install was with the root user, first action taken was 
to open redhat-config-network. 

Comment 4 Mark Goodman 2003-04-04 07:22:46 UTC
I can confirm that it only happened when I did a kickstart install with
reiserfs.  Installs with ext3 were fine.

Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2003-04-04 12:45:11 UTC
try to move away either 
(but not both :)
and retry...

or get new versions from

Comment 8 Mark Goodman 2003-04-04 22:56:46 UTC
Moving away either exception.py* didn't work.

redhat-config-network-1.2.3-3 works fine.
