This bug still exist in Fedora Core 6.
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 bug still exists in FC7T3. However, I should say that I am happy with the
solution provided in Comment #1. I agree that reducing the size of all menus is
a right thing to do. Moreover, system-control-network has sense only if "Allow
all users to enable and disable the device" is enabled in system-config-network,
which is not by default. I also do not understand the connections with the
Network Manager, that I do not use (more precisely with its (not?)capability to
work with multiple fixed IP adresses)
To sumarise, from my point of view you can close this bug.
Ok, closing then.
