Description of problem:
Some of our local coffe shops use a wireless service that has its ESSID Set to "Internet Oasis (FREE)". When I try to associate with the network, the program give the error "invalid character in key/directory names". This must be a valid character b/c i can connect manually without any problems using iwconfig.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run NetworkManager and NetworkManagerInfo
2. Select "InternetOasis (FREE)" network
Actual Results: Bad key or directory name: "/system/networking/wireless/networks/Internet Oasis (FREE)/timestamp": ` ' is an invalid character in key/directory names
Bad key or directory name: "/system/networking/wireless/networks/Internet Oasis (FREE)/essid": ` ' is an invalid character in key/directory names
Expected Results: Associate with the AP and obtain a DHCP lease.
Is there any way you can test NetworkManager-0.3.4-1.1.0.fc3, which has been in
FC3-updates for a while? I believe that's fixed this problem and it should
escape GConf keys correctly.
A 'yum update NetworkManager' should install that version, otherwise look at:
Same error with NetworkManager-0.3.4-1.1.0.fc3.
Sorry about not updating before asking.
Now it seems to be working...
