Bug Fix Advisory system-config-network bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0817-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated system-config-network packages that fix a bug are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The system-config-network packages provide network configuration utilities for
both the graphical user interface and command line. These utilities support
Ethernet, wireless, IPsec, Token Ring, ADSL, ISDN, and PPP.

This update fixes the following bug:

* When the /etc/hosts configuration file contained an invalid entry (for
example, an IP address without a hostname), an attempt to run the
system-config-network utility failed with a traceback written to standard error.
This update corrects the utility to verify that the /etc/hosts file does not
contain erroneous lines. As a result, when an invalid entry is present, a
warning message is displayed, and system-config-network starts as expected.
(BZ#492915)

All users of system-config-network are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolve this issue.
