Description Barry K. Nathan 2003-06-29 02:07:23 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030619

Description of problem:
Whenever I attempt to save my configuration, I get an error message dialog box.

The title of the dialog box is "Warning", and it has a picture of an exclamation
point in a yellow triangle.

The text inside this dialog box is:
---begin quote---
redhat-config-network:

Error saving Configuration!
[Errno 2] No such file or directory:
'//etc/sysconfig/network-scripts//ifcfg-lo.rpmsave'
---end quote---

The configuration seems to get saved anyway.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
redhat-config-network-1.3.1-1
initscripts-7.25-1
rpm-4.2.1-0.11

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make some kind of configuration change, or trick r-c-n into thinking you made
a change even when you didn't. (For example, double-click a PPP connection in
the Devices tab, then click OK.)

2. Choose Save from the File menu.

3. Quit r-c-n.

4. Start r-c-n up again and, if you made configuration changes, verify that they
took effect.

Actual Results:  Error message is displayed, but configuration is saved
nonetheless (as far as I can tell).

Expected Results:  Configuration saved without this error message.

Additional info:

[barryn@i5000e barryn]$ rpm -qf /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lo
initscripts-7.25-1

Hmmm... My best guess is that rpm left us with a dangling symlink when it
upgraded initscripts, and now redhat-network-config is choking. Perhaps r-c-n
isn't the guilty party, but it's the one displaying the message so for now
that's the component I'm reporting this bug against.

(Sorry I took so long to respond)

Bug still happens with the Fedora Core 1 release. I'll need to retest
with FC-devel when I get a chance.
