Description nick norman 2003-02-03 21:27:46 UTC
Description of problem:

When trying to add another ISDN interface (ippp3) the exception error report
below is created and results in a crash of the network config applet.

Only seems to have become a problem after I changed from a Realtek 8139 eth card
to a DEC/Tulip one

The Card died so a replacement was sought.

No when ever I try to add and interface teh fall over happens.  Edits, copies
etc. etc are all OK

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. open the RedHat Network Confgig from the system menu
2.Click on add button
Actual results:

Applet falls over

Expected results:

Adds an interface for me
