Unhappy redhat-config-network error


I am getting this ugly error when I try to acces redhat-config-network. I am using wireless lan card on laptop. Card is working fine and internet is also working, but I am unable to access the configuration.

Gives the following error


Component: redhat-config-network

You can probably fix it by removing the RPM package and re-installing it.

Angry it didnot help

I accidently posted the message as 'deth' as I was using a public computer and this person had not logged out.

Anyway, reinstalling the package didnot work. The same error pops up. Seems to be a bug

I don't know how to fix this problem.
However, if you tell us what you wish to accomplish, we can tell you which configuration files you will need to modify.

Also, you can try using the non-GUI tool, type: redhat-config-network-tui
