Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1260059
Please rebuild with NetworkManager 1.2 support for Fedora 24
Last modified: 2016-04-23 11:26:53 EDT
we've updated NetworkManager to 1.2 snapshot. Details:
NetworkManager-l2tp needs to be updated to work with the new nm-connection-editor. I've submitted the port upstream:
In meanwhile, please update the package to the new snapshot. I've prepared the package in user/lkundrak/NetworkManager-1.2 branch.
Alternatively, just assign this to me and I'll do the update.
URL in spec is wrong.
$ spectool -g -S NetworkManager-l2tp.spec

No. The 1.2.0 version doesn't exist yet -- the package's a pre-release git snapshot. I've uploaded a snapshot to the lookaside (which is what sources points to).
Sorry I mean Source not URL tag.
As I understand you used snapshot from your own git repository. So you didn't use official sources. Spec says nothing about this. Also as I said before Source tag is not correct.
Look at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=887674#c105 .
In this case we can use own sources. But .spec must explain this. And source tag must point to real source tarball.
Or we can wait when Sergey applied your pull request and set version tag. I sometimes see him in my Jabber so I can ask him. How many time we can wait?

Yeah, sure. Feel free to use the changes I've done as the base for a proper packaging then. Alternatively, you can keep using the release tarball and just add patches on top of it. Whatever works for you.

Well, that would be the most optimal solution.
I don't think there's a need to hurry -- the Fedora 23 is not yet released and this will only affect Fedora 24. The official release date for NetworkManager is not set yet, but it's likely sometime in November 2015. We'll announce it in advance and will probably do a couple of rounds of release candidates.
We're just playing it safe and started integrating it early so that there's plenty of time to test it. (And it would be really awesome if someone could test l2tp early, since we don't have the setup ourselves.)
The only problem is that now that we've imported the NetworkManager 1.2 snapshot into Fedora 24 the new nm-connection editor no longer works with the old l2tp preferences dialog.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
