Description of problem:
I have set up two devices with "neat". One ethernet and one wireless. I have
checked the "Allow all users to enable/disable this device" checkbox. I have
restarted networking, and then as a regular user fired up "Network Device
Control", which shows me ONLY the ethernet card, and not the wireless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create wireless interface with "neat"
2. Save changes + restart networking
3. Run "Network Device Control"
Actual Results: The device didn't show up in the list.
Expected Results: The wireless device should be in the list of available devices.
I am sorry... neat does chown 0600 on the ifcfg-* of the wireless device, so
redhat-control-network cannot read it. This was because of the key.
The version from Taroon (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta) and Cambridge (Red Hat
Linux) split the key into a seperate file and the initscripts know about this.
