system-config tools fail to start


after my last update today most of the system-config tools fail to start, also up2date
wonīt start anymore:
here is the error output.

Component: system-config-network
Version: 1.3.15
Summary: TBb23b20f8 No module named gnome.ui
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/system-config-network-gui", line 269, in ?
File "/usr/sbin/system-config-network-gui", line 179, in main
handleException(sys.exc_info(), PROGNAME, PRG_VERSION)
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/rhpl/", line 291, in handleException
fs = FileSelection(_("Please specify a file to save the dump"))
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/rhpl/", line 209, in __init__
import gnome.ui
ImportError: No module named gnome.ui

Local variables in innermost frame:
text: Please specify a file to save the dump
self: <rhpl.exception.FileSelection instance at 0xf6bbefac>
gtk: <module 'gtk' from '/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.pyc'>

----Up2date error-------
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 1267, in ?
sys.exit(main() or 0)
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 880, in main
from up2date_client import gui
File "", line 20, in ?
ImportError: No module named gnome

I know that it has something to do with python, but i donīt know exactly what i have to do.

Two things you can do.
One is to file a bug report at bugzilla and the other is to use command line

# ntsysv

which does the same thing.

I know this is alittle late but for anyone else who might have trouble with this:

edit your /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

and pick a mirror from

save and run.


oh and if you get the same error again....pick another mirror ;-)
