Description Miloslav Trmac 2003-02-28 14:49:17 UTC
Description of problem:
/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/ contains code that's
supposed to exit nicely when gtk can't be imported. Unfortunately,
triggering this code results in traceback ;-)

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. (unset DISPLAY; /usr/sbin/redhat-config-packages)

Additional info:
Maybe the other two exectuables (redhat-{cdinstall-helper,install-packages}
aka and should contains similar

Patch fixing the traceback and copying the code to other two toplevel files

This seems to solve the traceback issue for all three toplevel files.
"seems to" because I can test it only on RHL 7.3 right now.
