Description Răzvan Sandu 2008-05-16 18:26:51 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fresh Fedora 9, including NetworkManager
2. Start ntsysv or use chkconfig to see available daemons

Actual results:
There is no NetworkManagerDispatcher.

Expected results:
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It's been replaced by a dbus-activated callout that is run on-demand rather than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?
Comment 2 Răzvan Sandu 2008-05-16 19:02:48 EDT

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

Comment 5 Răzvan Sandu 2008-05-26 17:07:37 EDT
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.
