From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030314

Description of problem:
When attempting to modify anything within the Network Config GUI, the
application crashes when 'Apply' is selected.

Editing details of a particular connection (eth0) is successful, but upon
hitting 'Apply' or 'OK', the program crashes. This is also true of trying to
activate/deactivate connections. Error output was placed in the additional
information box.

No information need be changed for the error to occur, one need merley view a
devices properties by hitting Edit, click OK, and then click Apply.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Network Config control panel
2.Select a device and click Edit
3.Click OK
4.Click APPLY

Actual Results:  An Unhandled Exception error occurs and I am advised to submit
the info in the Additional Information box to bugzilla.

Expected Results:  Information saved and control returned to the Network Config

Additional info:

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-06-27 11:06:05 UTC
which version of rhpl do you have?
$ rpm -q rhpl

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2003-06-27 18:45:16 UTC
What package are you referring to?

rpm -q rhpl returns package not installed. 

Additionally, when I search on rhpl in the list of packages at RedHat, it is 
not identified as a known package.

I am not sure what you are looking for.

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2003-06-29 15:54:18 UTC
forgot, that rhpl was introduced in 8 and is not part of 7.x... sorry
