Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2011-10-13 10:47:43 CEST
When conf.d is empty, one gets:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/thinlinc/sbin/../libexec/tl-setup.py", line 1158, in <module>
  File "/opt/thinlinc/sbin/../libexec/tl-setup.py", line 1082, in main
  File "/opt/thinlinc/sbin/../libexec/tl-setup.py", line 575, in ask_for_admin_email
    addr = hive.get_string("/vsmserver/admin_email", "")
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get_string'
Comment 1 Emil Lock cendio 2023-07-10 13:37:22 CEST
The specific example shown above with tl-setup was resolved in commit r24506,
we should however still look into how to handle this problem more generally.
Comment 2 Emil Lock cendio 2023-07-14 13:12:31 CEST
This issue is caused by hiveconf.open_hive() returning None when failing to open the hive file (this is following the hiveconf specification). Because of this we always need to check that open_hive() doesn't return None before we can continue.
