Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447004
There is no NetworkManagerDispatcher service present
Last modified: 2008-05-27 10:51:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Despite these instructions (which I've reached from F9 release notes),
there is no NetworkManagerDispatcher service present (it once was, in F8).
Is this a bug or it was eliminated ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fresh Fedora 9, including NetworkManager
2. Start ntsysv or use chkconfig to see available daemons
There is no NetworkManagerDispatcher.
It is unclear if NetworkManagerDispatcher is no longer included/necessary in the
RPM package or this is a bug. If it was eliminated, please update documentation
It's been replaced by a dbus-activated callout that is run on-demand rather than
always-on consuming memory. /usr/libexec/nm-dispatcher.action. But it runs the
same scripts in the same way and you shouldn't notice any difference.
Is it not working the way you expect?
I've opened this bug only for the NetworkManagerDispatcher absence. If it was
replaced, it's OK - please only update this webpage accordingly:
On the other hand, unfortunately, NetworkManager only works as expected in
*some* cases. Please see bug #447383, comment 7 and the issues in bug # 134886,
which occurs frequently.
For the moment I only use NetworkManager on non-critical workstations, where I
can afford to test. It still can't be used on servers/critical machines.
Thanks *a lot*,
Sorry, I've meant bug #445383, comment 7 and bug #134886 above.
After the last upgrade (NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3669.fc9.i386), it works
for me, except this:
- on a laptop, I was unable to fix the "keyring password" issue
for the wireless connection, despite the fact I've followed exactly the
instructions given at
Closing this as NOTABUG, since you've explained that NetworkManagerDispatcher
was replaced by another mechanism.
Please update this docs accordingly
Thanks a lot,
Thanks, references to the dispatcher have been removed from the wiki page.
