Spurious device name in the output of nmcli device wifi subcommands
Last modified: 2017-08-01 05:30:33 EDT
Description of problem:
When running one of:
nmcli device wifi list ifname wlan0
nmcli device wifi connect <SSID> ifname wlan0
nmcli wrongly adds the device name to the output. This can break scripts that parse the output of the above commands.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
# nmcli device wifi list ifname wlan0
IN-USE SSID MODE CHAN RATE SIGNAL BARS SECURITY
* aoeu Infra 1 130 Mbit/s 90 ▂▄▆█ WPA2
# nmcli device wifi connect ssid ifname wlan0
Device 'wlan0' successfully activated with '77d008bf-6a7b-40bf-a30c-cec6f0d16a36'.
The 'wlan0' line shouldn't be there.
