Description Ivan Gyurdiev 2006-01-30 19:45:21 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20060126 Fedora/1.5-5 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
The subject says it all:

"Please contact the system administrator to resolve the following problem: SIOCGIFFLAGS error: No such device" when the applet is clicked (otherwise shows a stop sign..network disconnected).

Started happening after I reinstalled the madwifi drivers on x86_64. I have 3 network cards - ath0, eth0, eth1. I have some sort of dummy/non-working configuration for ath0 at the moment, in case that's confusing it. Only eth0 should start on boot (#0 below).

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install madwifi drivers
2. Run gnome-netstatus-applet

If right-click on the applet and type in eth0 into the Name box, does the applet
start working again?
Comment 2 Ivan Gyurdiev 2006-08-20 09:42:04 EDT
Yes, the applet works again. I don't use wireless anymore, so I can't help with
testing - if I switch to wireless now it just says that I'm disconnected (which
is true).
