Description Matthias Clasen 2005-10-14 16:34:29 UTC
People who might need this kind of thing are unlikely to look for it there.
If we really need to have this, it should live in Internet, but we'd rather
get rid of it.

Hi Harald,

Do you have a problem removing this?

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2005-10-31 07:22:24 UTC
Err, if we remove it, do we have a replacement for any dialup connection, ISDN,
Modem, DSL??

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-31 12:46:11 UTC
It is still available via the "New" toolbar item in system-config-network
(which is btw, pretty confusing, since it does something else than the "New" 

Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2005-10-31 15:44:00 UTC
The "New" menuitem is in the "Profile" menu, Mr Clasen.

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-31 16:21:50 UTC
Sure, but the "new" toolitem isn't labeled 
'I would correspond to the "New" item in the file menu if there were one'
but just "New". 

Don't you think it is confusing to have a "New" toolitem
and a "New" menuitems which do different things ?!

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2005-10-31 16:47:32 UTC
"new" on the device tab creates a new interface device. "new" on the hw tab
creates a new hw devices. "new" on the ipsec tab creates a new ipsec connection.

Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-31 16:59:10 UTC
Ok, I'll give up. That ui is hopelessly confusing. 

Comment 8 Harald Hoyer 2005-11-01 08:06:08 UTC
That's what you wanted to prove, isn't it. But nobody stepped up and helped me
to improve it. :-/

Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2005-11-08 14:03:58 UTC
Thanks for doing this, Harald.
