    I got better one after a few minute..
    by adding this two line before line 602 (/usr/share/system-config-network/netconfpkg/gui/

    if (not isinstance (host.Hostname, str)):

    now it works like charms again.. hehe.. 😎

    This was helpful. Summary: if the /etc/hosts file is not well-formed, the python script doesn’t handle it well. In my case, somehow a long entry that was commented out got “line wrapped”, leaving some uncommented garbage on the next line. Fixing the hosts file or adding the above patch “worked”. It seems that some complaint to the user should be generated in such a case, though.
