I get an error whenever I try to run any of the redhat-config-* programs, such as redhat-config-packages...
[root@auburn root]# redhat-config-packages
Unable to import gtk module. This may be due to running without
$DISPLAY set. Exception was:
could not open display
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/MainWindow.py", line 11, in ?
NameError: name 'sys' is not defined
I'm not sure what technology these config programs use, but they seem to be more than just ANSI or VT100. I can't get them to run from either the console nor PuTTY over SSH.
I just completed a fresh install of RedHat 9 with the server profile, I've set my hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network, DHCP is enabled in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0, and /etc/resolv.conf is correctly being autogenerated by the DHCP client. I've even tried setting $DISPLAY per the suggestion of www . europe . redhat.com / documentation / rhl7.2 / rhl-ig-s390-en-7.2 / s1-guimode-booting . php3
