EAP-PEAP support missing from NetworkManager 0.7
Last modified: 2007-12-04 16:23:12 EST
Description of problem:
Support for PEAP as an EAP authentication method seems to have disappeared in
NetworkManager 0.7. Its working quite well in Fedora 7 but support for it seems
to be missing in rawhide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a WPA or WPA2 wireless network in the NetworkManager menu.
2. Attempt to select PEAP as your Authentication method.
PEAP is not an available option.
PEAP should be available in the drop down as a supported authentication method.
PEAP is a working option in NetworkManager 0.6.5

PEAP should be in 0.7.0-0.6.3.svn3094 and later. Does anyone need peaplabel=X ?
I don't know if I need it. If it is easily add-able, thank you for adding it :)

Nope, I don't need it. The svn version 3094 from koji is working for me.
Where could I get the svn version 3094 ?

Thansk, and it works for me either.

nm-applet crash without CA cert supplied
nm-applet crashes if I don't specify a CA certificate. It does connect if I do
supply one. I've attached the bug-buddy output from the crash.
Russell: could you try
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=24924 and see if that fixes
That seems to be the money build! I was able to loging without a CA cert PEAP0.
NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.6.6.svn3109.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update NetworkManager'
This version has the nm-applet crash problem. Also when I attempt to select a
CA there is a "Untitled Filter" active in the open file dialog that won't let me
see the cert file.
NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.6.6.svn3109.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Your certificates need to be PEM or DER formatted. They can't be pkcs12 at this
I thought that .cer was a valid name for a DER formatted cert. Is that not the
$ openssl x509 -inform DER -in DSTRootCAX3.cer -noout -text
Seems to accept the file just fine.
I also have an nm-applet crash problem with the svn3109 release. In mine I tell
it to ignore that I don't have a CA, and it then croaks. Should I file a
No, already taken care of in an upcoming update. Thanks though.
