Description Don Slife 2003-07-01 21:59:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Changing profiles causes the program to write to /etc/sysconfig/network
(/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/Conf.py line 278).  If you are not root,
this causes an unhandled exception.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run program not as root
2. change network profiles

Actual Results:  Uncaught exception dialog

Expected Results:  Either I should be prompted for the root password or it
should work or I should be told I can't do it.
