Description Yves Bellefeuille 2006-01-18 20:35:30 EST
The program system-control-network used to be in the Gnome menu, under System
Tools > Network Device Control. This was a useful program and should be
restored; indeed, I don't understand how an ordinary user to supposed to use a
dial-up connection to the Internet without this program.

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
Comment 2 Yves Bellefeuille 2006-02-20 20:27:44 EST
The problem still exists. As it is, normal users can't start a dial-up 
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2006-02-22 04:36:10 EST
Hmm... /usr/share/applications/redhat-neat-control.desktop should be there!
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2006-02-22 07:38:27 EST
It is there... right click on the fedora symbol, open the menu editor and
activate the checkbox for "Network Device Control"

Reassigning to gnome-panel... I don't know who sets the defaults.

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.

Thank you in advance.
