Description of problem:
"neat" and "redhat-config-network" both run fine, of course, on a fresh install
of RH9. But after some upgrading (using apt-rpm) from the RH9-updates section
of http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/apt/redhat/ and some updates of gnome from
http://people.ecsc.co.uk/~matt/downloads/apt/redhat-9-i386/ , neither of these
two commands does anything except dump an error:
[brett@Miles brett]$ neat
** (redhat-config-network-gui:2131): WARNING **:
--- you're entering a whole world of pain ---
(redhat-config-network:2131): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gobject.c:946: object
class `GnomeProgram' has no property named `default-icon'
redhat-cofig-network then fails to load, and an error dialog pops up containing
the error that I've attached to this report. Note that the error in the
attachment is from the rawhide version of redhat-config-network. It's the same
when using the RH9 version.
I don't really know what is wrong... I've played with upgrading and downgrading
my gnome2-python, python2, libxml2, libxml2-python, pygtk packages... to no avail.
What I have *not* tried is downgrading to glib2-2.2.1-x, as this will break
almost all of the rest of gnome... I'm running development packages. By the
look of the first warning, it seems that this might be an issue. I've used both
the rawhide and independent builds of glib2-2.2.2-1, and the results are the same.
All the other redhat-config-x packages seem to work fine, though
redhat-config-services dumps the same error as above at the terminal, but then
I'm about out of ideas.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.either from a terminal or from the menu, run "redhat-config-network"
2.enter password for pam
Actual Results: the errors reported in the description
Expected Results: I should be able to see and change my network settings, yo!

the error dialog
better get the updates from:
Hello... and thanks for the updates. I removed the old versions and installed
the new ones fresh, and --force 'd rhpl because I was using the rawhide version...
Tried to run redhat-config-network and it still fails... though it dumps a
different error this time. I'll post an attachment.
This all seems to have to do with python, to me. Any idea what is causing this?
Just for reference, these are the versions I'm running:
I've tried with rawhide python and rawhite gnome-python2 packages, and still it
fails. This is frustrating because r-c-n is a great program.

new error dump
This seems to be fixed in the newest version of redhat-config-network. Just
tried 1.3.1-1 and it runs fine all of a sudden. I don't know what the problems
above were related to, but they seem to have gone away. Rock on.
Closing due to inactivity. Reopen, if the problem is still existing.
