I did a test install on RHEL 6.6 and installed system-config-firewall-tui, I get this error:

[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# system-config-firewall-tui
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/system-config-firewall-tui", line 29, in <module>
    import fw_tui
  File "/usr/share/system-config-firewall/fw_tui.py", line 34, in <module>
    import fw_nm
ImportError: No module named fw_nm

===================

Is this the error you are seeing?

IN summary:

yum install system-config-firefall

then:

service messagebus start

Then system-config-firewall-tui will work.

And before anyone complains, I know that brings in a bunch of crap. We (CentOS) did not do it, this is an upstream issue that is now also in CentOS.

In case anyone comes along and does the old copy-paste [QUOTE]IN summary:

yum install system-config-firefall

[/QUOTE]

Should read:

yum install system-config-firewall

I also saw this problem from a full DVD iso download from around 12/23/2014. I am currently running yum update and if that doesn't fix it I plan on following the above steps.

I've managed to solve the problem in CentOS 6.6 by doing:
yum install system-config-firewall-tui dbus eggdbus
service messagebus start

after that system-config-firewall-tui should start normally.

Thanks alix. I can confirm this works for my centos 6 x64 installation.

yum install system-config-firewall system-config-firewall-tui dbus eggdbus && service messagebus start

Whenever I encounter this problem, I always follow the instructions provided by Alix to solve it:

# yum install system-config-firewall-tui dbus eggdbus
# service messagebus start

It seems that this is now fixed upstream.
Reference: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1123919

For me the following worked:
# yum install system-config-firewall-tui dbus-python dbus
# rpm -q system-config-firewall
system-config-firewall-1.2.27-7.2.el6_6.noarch
# service messagebus start
# system-config-firewall-tui

# yum install system-config-firewall-tui dbus-python dbus
# service messagebus start
# system-config-firewall-tui

Those following commands I have to preform whenever I get a CentOS 6 OpenVZ/KVM VPS with a minimal install of CentOS 6. I don't know what it is but for whatever reason the command doesn't ever work unless I do these commands, I am working on making a script or something that I can run that installs this and a couple other base things like wget and epel and does a yum upgrade so I don't have to do this manually each and every time.
