Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 445267
nm-connection-editor crash setting WiFi MAC
Last modified: 2009-02-04 19:22:13 EST
Description of problem:
Setting the MAC entry for my intel ipw3945 in the "Editing Auto linksys" window
(the linksys AP is not accessible right now) to the MAC on the card crashes the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Crash, attached bugreport
Created attachment 304557 [details]
Bugreport from Gnome
is the linksys AP an unencrypted/open wifi network? If so, this should be fixed
upstream in the applet SVN r712.
Yes, it is. But it is not in sight right now.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
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
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...
Stephen: can you try the version in updates-testing?
sudo yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update NetworkManager
and see if that fixes the issue?
That fixes it. Thanks.
