Description greg hosler 2003-01-20 02:08:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: Just installed Phoebe II. nis client (with incorrect NIS domain name, by accident, but might be related). when firstboot ran, immediately I get an error box complaining "An error has occured in the Date and Time module" The first callback is: /usr/share/firstbootWindow.py line 153 TypeError: gethostbyaddr() arguement must be String not None Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. install new system. 2. boot first time 3. Actual Results: No date/time setup in first boot Expected Results: no error box. Additional info: p[ossibly relavant, possibly not. the nis domainname was wrong.
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-01-20 16:06:08 UTC
Do you mean NIS or NTP? Also, did firstboot crash immediately or did you enter a server into the NTP entry and then click Forward?
Comment 2 greg hosler 2003-01-20 23:24:20 UTC
actually, i DID mean "NIS" (not NTP) firstboot (as a whole) didn't seem to crash. but the date/time thingie of firstboot did crash. I never saw the date/time screen (I am assuming that that is where you enter the "NTP entry", yes ?
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-01-23 17:38:37 UTC
Ah, ok. I don't think that NIS has anything to do with this problem then. Did the traceback you saw look anything like: File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/redhat-config-date.py", line 48, in ? mainWindow.mainWindow().stand_alone() File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/mainWindow.py", line 180, in __init__ self.datePage = date_gui.datePage(self.dateBackend) File "/usr/share/redhat-config-date/date_gui.py", line 171, in __init__ ntpServer = socket.gethostbyaddr(ntpServerIP) TypeError: gethostbyaddr() argument 1 must be string, not None It probably appeared in a window just as firstboot was starting up, right? If so, then this is a duplicate of bug #82061.
Comment 4 greg hosler 2003-01-24 10:56:01 UTC
yes, looks like a dup of 82061. by the way, I _did_ do a bugzilla search (on firstboot as I recall) before entering the bug, and nothing showed up. :(
Comment 5 Brent Fox 2003-01-24 19:35:52 UTC
That may be because the date/time screen in firstboot is actually the code from redhat-config-date, so most of the bugs may have been filed against that component. This would explain why your Bugzilla query turned up nothing. Resolving as a duplicate. Thanks for your report. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 82061 ***
