Bug: 1236315 system-config-kickstart package

Getting this error when trying to run system-config-kickstart package

[email protected]:~$ system-config-kickstart

(system-config-kickstart.py:23531): libglade-WARNING **: Could not load support for `gnome': libgnome.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/system-config-kickstart.py", line 92, in
kickstartGui.kickstartGui(file)
File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/kickstartGui.py", line 131, in __init__
self.X_class = xconfig.xconfig(xml, self.kickstartData)
File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/xconfig.py", line 80, in __init__
self.fill_driver_list()
File "/usr/share/system-config-kickstart/xconfig.py", line 115, in fill_driver_list
raise RuntimeError, (_("Could not read video driver database"))
RuntimeError: Could not read video driver database

The workaround that has worked for me

# apt-get remove hwdata
# wget ftp://mirror.ovh.net/mirrors/ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/h/hwdata/hwdata_0.234-1_all.deb
# dpkg -i hwdata_0.234-1_all.deb
# apt-get install system-config-kickstart
