Description bennie smith 2002-12-20 19:54:50 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
(This might go in you netcfg category.  There was no category for 'neat', the
app that crashed.)
Red Hat 8.0, Bluecurve (based on Gnome I guess), KDE is NOT installed.
There is no elegant way to connect to the internet via PPP with a 56K modem, so
went to Internet Configuration Wizzard and set up ppp0.  Then opened System
Settings/Network.  Have to enter Root password.  Then select ppp0. Activate. 
Dialing happens. Connection made.  Then there's no way to tell how fast you
connect or to see the status of your connection.

Then after a few minutes, this happens:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 774, in update_devicelist
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/", line
63, in __init__
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/", line
66, in load
OSError: Too many open files

The only things Open are neat, mozilla, and yahoo.  And 2 terminal sessions,
with nothing running in them.

The connection stays alive, but now there's no way to disconnect except to kill
the pppd process.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. System Settings/Network
2. Activate ppp0
3. Wait for error

Actual Results:  neat crashed as explained above.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/neat", line 774, in update_devicelist
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/", line
63, in __init__
  File "/usr/sbin/../share/redhat-config-network/netconfpkg/", line
66, in load
OSError: Too many open files

Additional info:

Sure do miss rp3 with the little visual activity graph and an indication  of
download speed.
