Description Charles R. Anderson 2008-04-14 11:04:45 EDT
Description of problem:

Got a pop up dialog saying "The NetworkManager applet could not find some
required resources.  It cannot continue.".  It didn't seem to crash, though.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
didn't try

Actual results:

Here are the process that are still running:

cra       2954  0.0  0.7  61608 16044 ?        S      Apr 10 00:00:00 nm-applet

root      2407  0.0  0.0   4044  1308 ?        Ss     Apr 10 00:00:00

NetworkManager --pid-file=/var/run/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.pid

It looks like these processes are left over from an older version of NM, since
it was updated on April 11:

You'll need to kill and restart the applet.  This occurs because some icons got
renamed during the RPM update, but you're still running the old applet.  When
PackageKit does stuff, it triggers a panel resize, which causes the applet to
re-read it's icons (since the panel size changed the icon sizes will be
different), and since it's the old applet it can't find them...
