Description Jeremy Katz 2007-09-20 13:50:08 EDT
The applet doesn't want to appear in the notification area when I login. 
Killing it and restarting it works fine.  Nothing obvious in ~/.xsession-errors.
 And the process is running.

killing and restarting nm-applet from a text window makes it appear.

Wireless networks are only seen if SELinux is in permissive mode.

I forwarded the details to fedora-selinux:

a patch that might help

Here is a patch I sent to dcbw, which might help with the incorrect setup of
the icon at start.

Patch has been committed upstream and will appear in the next snapshot in
rawhide later tonight.

I installed NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.3.svn2880.fc8 and newest SELinux policy and

After gdm login, nm-applet now appears (yea!), but the icon has the little 'red
X' indicating no network connection.

But my wired network is up. 

'Left clicking' on the icon shows the Wired network selected and active, and
shows all my wireless networks.

Selecting 'Wired Network' forces a disconnect/reconnect, with the proper icon
now displayed.
