Grr…I just want to get my network config back as need to test something on client site WIFI setting..

heck..

Only do this if you’re so tempted to fix it quickly..
suggestion wait for real fix.. soon..


vi /usr/share/system-config-network/netconfpkg/gui/maindialog.py

go to line 602
add comment to both problematic line..


# hclist.append([host.IP, host.Hostname,
# string.join(host.AliasList, ' ')])

line-602
examine the /etc/hosts later and fix could be ideal way..

this would be a help if you only want to spend a less 1minute time to fix this .. in order to get it up again ..

and continue the work..
system-config-network
p/s : .. the linksys WIFI setting just went mad.. no idea why..

Updates 2 ::: Fixed it..refer to comment.

    I was just curious as to what you use for your desktop OS? Is it primarily CentOS or Ubuntu? I’m considering CentOS but I haven’t seen many articles about really using it for a workstation.

    Did you get further into GWT?

    Btw GWT is just javascript compiled via Java’s JRE, and the produced code is simply javascript. So if you want to code JS the most professional way – like IDE dev support, step debugging, and unit tests – use GWT.

    For me, I just love java. C# had a great future but Microsoft managed to screw it up somehow.
