Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 410201
can't choose file from CA Certificate file chooser
Last modified: 2008-01-06 20:18:39 EST
Description of problem:
Only directories---no regular files---show up in the file chooser which is shown
for selection of CA Certificates. It is possible to type in the filename of the
CA Certificate, but that's annoying and this worked in previous versions of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have NetworkManager running in the presence of a wireless network which
2. Select "Dynamic WEP (802.1x)" for Wireless Security.
3. Click on the button for selecting the CA Certificate.
4. Notice that in the "Chooses a Certificate Authority certificate..." file
chooser which is displayed, that no regular files appear, even in directories
which contain regular files.
No files appear. I'm forced to type in the file name (which I can't see!) into
the Location field myself.
There should be files I can select from within the file chooser.
The file filter combo box in the lower right corner of the file chooser shows
"Untitled filter", and there are no other options given. Therefore, I suspect
that the problem is caused by using a bad file filter.
Your certificates need to be PEM or DER formatted certificates and must have the
extension .der or .pem. The problem is that pkcs12 certs aren't yet supported
(they are easily converted iwth openssl to pem format) but they are hard to
distinguish from DER certs based on content. Can you check to see if you rename
your cert file and ensure that it is DER or PEM format that it works for you?
Aha. That was the problem. My certificate was already PEM, but I had it
misnamed. Might I suggest that the file filter in the chooser indicate that
it's only displaying *.(der|pem)? If it did, then this wouldn't have been so
Can you try http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=276538 ? It
should have the filter displayed.
Yes, the svn3138 build solves the problem. Thanks!
