Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 225408
Reconnect fails to find host
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:54 EST
Description of problem:
When I suspend my laptop and move to a new network, xchat-gnome is unable to
find the irc hosts. I usually have to manually initiate a reconnect with the
/reconnect command as the NetworkManager plugin does not appear to work. This
results in an unknown host message and I have to restart xchat-gnome to be able
to log back in. Reconnecting while on the same network is fine.
I have the OSD, NM and notification plugins enabled and I use NetworkManager to
manage my network connections.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to an irc server.
2. Move machine onto a new network
3. xchat fails to notice loss of connection, so initiate manual reconnect
Unknown host messages
xchat-gnome should find the host and reconnect.
I've pushed 0.16 for FC6 earlier today, and if I remember correctly Guillaume
fixed some regression regarding NM in it. When it becomes available can you
check to see if this bug still occurs? My laptop went toes-up over the
holidays, so I can't easily reproduce this bug, and verify that it's fixed. Thanks.
There is no change in behaviour with the update.
Still a problem with xchat-gnome-0.17-4.fc7
Any idea if this affects the regular xchat too?

No, I'm not sure if xchat experiences this bug also.
Though, taking a guess I would think it would, since x-g just adds a gnome
front-end, and some plugins to xchat.
xchat-gnome-0.18-3.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
