View Full Version : Revelation broken in Fedora Core 6

30th October 2006, 01:54 AM

I am using Fedora Core 6 and have installed the password manager application 'Revelation' from the fedora extra's repository using yum.

When clicking on any stored passwords I get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 266, in <lambda>
self.tree.selection.connect("changed", lambda w: self.__state_entry(self.tree.get_selected()))
File "/usr/bin/revelation", line 305, in __state_entry
e = self.entrystore.get_entry(iter)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/revelation/data.py", line 400, in get_entry
e = self.get_value(iter, COLUMN_ENTRY)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/warnings.py", line 61, in warn
warn_explicit(message, category, filename, lineno, module, registry)
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/warnings.py", line 82, in warn_explicit
for item in filters:
TypeError: unknown type (null)

This happens with a new password archive as well as my existing password archive.
Fortunately it works enough to let me export my passwords to a plain text file (or I would have been most unhappy).

Is this a problem with the rpm from fedora extras? Or some config/missing library error on my part?
I installed it with yum so I would have expected it to just work.

I have the same problem so you are not alone. I didn't try entering new passwords. I just assumed that the password file format had changed or something because it didn't recognize my old password file from FC4 but apparently not.

I hope it gets fixed soon because it's one of my favorite programs.

Seems to be working fine now.

There have been a few updates since I started the thread. Guess one of them fixed the issue.
