Comment 4 Damien Covey 2007-10-31 18:24:52 EDT
Judging by your attachment and my console output it looks like it has to do with NM not handling HAL devices that don't have an "info.vendor' property. To me it looks like "/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_ace_1211_noserial_if0" is a USB device on your system that has no "info.vendor", if you try unplugging all USB devices and clicking nm-applet perhaps you can find the offender. Still, I'd say NM (or hal) has to be patched to handle this.
Comment 5 Dan Williams 2007-10-31 18:28:45 EDT
Fixed in upstream SVN FWIW. Turns out that HAL changed recently so that the net.physical_device of the network interface doesn't have the product & vendor IDs, but the net.physical_device's parent does. So I've committed code that walks up the tree up to the parent of the net.physical_device of the network interface and grabs product & vendor info from that. Additionally, it is now smarter about what it displays as the device description, and I fixed the actual bug where the applet was crashing when the product or vendor info was NULL.

Sounds great. Any idea if this is going to make it into Fedora 8 ?
Comment 7 Dan Williams 2007-11-01 07:26:12 EDT
Will try to; can't guarantee that.
Comment 8 Klaus Möllenhoff 2007-11-03 14:42:30 EDT

Comment 9 Dan Williams 2007-11-03 15:30:28 EDT
going to be in a 0-day update to F8
Comment 10 Klaus Möllenhoff 2007-11-09 06:45:32 EST

Comment 11 Dan Williams 2007-11-09 14:50:09 EST
an update for F8 hasn't been pushed yet since I'm still getting the cert issues fixed.
Comment 12 Klaus Möllenhoff 2007-11-14 09:55:00 EST
hi when do you think you are able to push an update?
Comment 13 Dan Williams 2007-11-21 02:28:10 EST
*** Bug 393651 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 14 Alexey Neyman 2007-11-21 02:46:11 EST
I am not sure #393651 is a duplicate; I didn't have to click anything to make nm-applet crash. Anyway, will retry once this one is fixed. Any chance for that to happen any time soon?
