Description of problem:
Profiles fail miserably on my machine. I had them working quite nicely on
redhat 8.0, but now that I am using 9, they complain that they can't find
devices after I switch profiles.
My setup is basically an ethernet card that has office, dhcp and home settings
(eth0, eth0:1, eth0:2) that are each in separate profiles of the same name.
Every time I switch profiles and try to start a device, it says to me that it
can't find device eth0:1. In order to get it working, I have to edit the
device, save all and then start the device. Once this is done, switching back
to the old profile results in a similar failure.
I also tried to switch profiles from redhat-control-network as a normal user and
got the following error dump:
Summary: TB /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/Conf.py:278:write:IOError:
[Errno 13] Permission denied: '/etc/sysconfig/network'
Traceback (most recent call last):

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/etc/sysconfig/network'
Local variables in innermost frame:
self: <rhpl.Conf.ConfShellVar instance at 0x8674434>
By the way, is there any prospect of having a cancel option added to the window
that appears when one tries to start a device, particularly ppp devices?
