Comment 2 Dan Williams 2008-05-05 20:56:42 UTC
is the linksys AP an unencrypted/open wifi network?  If so, this should be fixed
upstream in the applet SVN r712.

Comment 3 Horst H. von Brand 2008-05-05 20:57:53 UTC
Yes, it is. But it is not in sight right now.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 10:40:43 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Just installed the live iso to a usb stick to try out before upgrading, and I'm
getting a similar crash. Is this the same?

I don't have to actually edit anything - simply:

- choose Edit Connections, Wireless Tab
- select the only connection, click Edit
- in the window that pops up just click OK
- Crash

On the other hand, clicking Cancel at this point successfully dismisses the window.

(I'd like to switch from DHCP to a static IP)

rpm -q NetworkManager

There are no updates for NetworkManager* pending...

Comment 6 Dan Williams 2008-06-04 18:22:23 UTC
Stephen: can you try the version in updates-testing?

sudo yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update NetworkManager

and see if that fixes the issue?

Comment 7 Stephen 2008-06-06 13:12:22 UTC
That fixes it. Thanks.
