Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 237447
WPA Enterprise stopped working
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
can't connect to WPA Enterprise SSID any more
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. choose a WPA Enterprise SSID
2. fill in your authentication credentials
3. look in your .xsession-errors for "nmi_save_network_info(): Error saving
secret for wireless network 'dcs_wpa' in keyring: 5"
not on the WPA Enterprise SSID
on the WPA Enterprise SSID
rolling back to f7test3 (0.6.5-0.4.svn2474.fc7) appears to fix it for me, so I
suspect it's a recent regression.
upping severity (a) to see if anyone notices (there's been no response for three
weeks now, mind you that's not unusual--see bug 209496) and (b) because I don't
want to see F7 broken in this respect as it will generate support load
Hello, I suspect my Bug 243590 is a duplicate of this (I also got the impression
NM was having trouble storing the key). I'll try rolling back to the package you
suggested and see if this works for me.
Yes, I think you might be right.
NM does have trouble storing the key, but since you're offered the key during
the EAP conversation, it shouldn't need to store the key in the first place.
In fact it's worse than that, as it gives you the false sense of security that
your 802.1X password is being safely stored in the keyring, when actually NM
stores it in plain text in gconf.
Apparently NM 0.7 will fix this horrendous error. It's not due till after the
release of F8.
