Operating System database field

i dont know about changing the details in the checksetup.pl file, but
re-running that should definately work, but if you need a quick hack you can
edit the values directly in the DB.

op_sys in table bugs is of enum type:

enum('All', 'Windows 2000', 'Windows NT', 'Windows XP', 'Linux', 'FreeBSD',
'AIX', 'BeOS', 'HP-UX', 'OS/2', 'Solaris', 'SunOS', 'other')

use something like phpMyAdmin to manually edit those values.

hope that helps u in the mean time till the gurus tell you whats wrong!

I forgot to mention that I was running v2.16.3 in case that's of any use to

Kind regards,
