How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just run redhat-config-network from konsole or alt-f2
2.Wait a few seconds and enter the root password
3.Wait a little more and read the crash dump

Actual Results:  I see a screen telling me that this is a bug to be reported on bugzilla

Expected Results:  I should have seen the program gui running, like it was in RedHat 8.0

You may want to try the latest unofficial rcn and rhpl here.  Upgrade everything
here except the .src.rpm packages and report your findings.

Comment 2 Marcelo Roberto Jimenez 2003-06-16 22:43:28 EDT

The rpms did not install:

[root@phoenix redhat-config-network]# rpm -Uvh
redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.9-2.noarch.rpm rhpl-0.93.2-1.i386.rpm
warning: redhat-config-network-1.2.9-2.noarch.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key
ID c5575542
error: Failed dependencies:
        rhpl >= 0:0.105 is needed by redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.9-2
Comment 3 Marcelo Roberto Jimenez 2003-06-16 23:16:00 EDT
I have grabbed the source rpms and removed the ">= 0:0.105" part of the
requirement of tui and rebuilt the binaries from the source. The program loaded
normally and the error did not show.
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2003-06-17 05:07:59 EDT
better get the latest updates from this page (actually 1.2.11):
Comment 5 Marcelo Roberto Jimenez 2003-06-21 10:19:12 EDT
have downloaded and installed without problems the following rpms from
http://people.redhat.com/harald/redhat-config-network/ :
- redhat-config-network-1.2.12-4.noarch.rpm 
- redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.12-4.noarch.rpm 
- rhpl-0.93.3-1.i386.rpm

Everything is working fine. Thank you for your help.
