Description of problem:

I'm getting exceptions trying to use the Druid to configure
network components - Add/Edit, etc

See bug #76446

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

Applied rpm as suggested in bug#76446


Still getting same errors - what am I missing ?

Why doesn't up2date (which I've run repeatedly) handle this ?

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-02-10 09:50:58 UTC
try this:
# rpm -e redhat-config-network
# rm -fr /usr/share/redhat-config-network
# rpm -ivh redhat-config-network-1.0.3-1.i386.rpm

and maybe these exceptions are not the same as in 76466? Please report the
original exception.

Comment 2 jeff_w_green 2003-02-10 17:54:40 UTC
Hi Harald,

    Many Thanks, these steps seem to have fixed the problem
- I can now use the Druid.

The problem seems to be related to the number of ethernet ports,
<= 6 and everything is OK. I'm using a couple of Dell 2650 boxes
as routers (2 ethernet on m/b) with Adaptec DuraLAN 4 port cards.

Installing 2 Adaptec cards (total 10 ports) provokes the problem

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2003-02-17 11:38:02 UTC
you do not seem to have version 1.0.3 installed... This exception cannot happen
with the new version.
Please verify with:

$ rpm -q redhat-config-network

that you have installed the correct updated version
