Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 397701
Upgrade from F7 to F8 forget all existing configurations
Last modified: 2009-01-09 00:19:34 EST
Description of problem:
On upgrade your existing confs are lost
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, did twice with FF8 i386 and F8 x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade an F7 install where NM-vpnc was in use
No conf is remembered on startup
Previous configurations are preserved
The structure of the GConf /system/network/ directory has completely changed
from NM 0.6.4 to 0.7.0, so that's no surprise. I'd close this as a WON'T FIX.
However I think the secrets from the gnome keyring should remain.
The secrets didn't, actually I had to wipe the keyring and restart NM as I was
not given a chance to retype a password I type wrongly.
Yeah, that's another bug. I spent a lot of time looking at the vpn stack in NM
0.7, but I can't fix it all without Dan's input on what the original intent was
wrt dbus interfaces...

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
