Description of problem:
normally I've just used netconfig or edited
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX to get the specific network setting I
want. But I tried running neat to see how it was. It died and caused the
expected string or buffer
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/redhat-config-network-gui", line 154, in ?

TypeError: expected string or buffer
After this I tried editing the ifcfg-eth0 files and it just would not work
properly since ifup appeard to be using /etc/sysconfig/networking files instead.
(I have not had time to look into this part yet) As of now I've had to manually
set network setting w/ ifconfig and route add in order to get connectivity. I'll
try editing the networking profiles file and see about fixing this for me, but
the exception is probably the key that needs fixing
It looks like during the build it somehow got the build dirs in the path to the
application when it should have been chrooted, maybe?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. manually edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX
2. run neat or rhc-network, and it happens every tie
3.I haven't reproduced it on an other sytem but at least one other person I've
spoken to has seen similar behaviour and bug 97252 has some similarities...
Actual Results: same error as seen in description.
