wicd-curses fails to start

Asked by aldente on 2012-12-09

Just after downloading wicd via yum, in an attempt to move to wicd from NetworkManager, I ran wicd-curses for the first time. However, it failed to start with the following python exception from a constructor.

Could someone help to shed light on this?

Thank you,

$ rpm -qa | grep wicd

Seems like you're using a newer urwid, which will be supported in 1.7.3.

Please have a look at the linked bugreport, and ask your distribution maintainers to apply the following patches:
