NetworkManager floods errors in /var/log/messages
Last modified: 2008-08-25 13:00:58 EDT
Description of problem: the /var/log/messages file is flooded with errors and soon fills the entire space available, preventing the next login. Until that file is deleted, i am not able to login again. I am recently upgraded to kde4.1 from the 'updates-testing' repo.
i see thousands of lines in that file as below:
Aug 25 13:05:14 localhost NetworkManager: nm_supplicant_interface_get_connection_state: assertion `NM_IS_SUPPLICANT_INTERFACE (self)' failed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@localhost log]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 22.214.171.124-108.fc9.i686 #1 SMP Mon Aug 4 14:08:11 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@localhost log]# rpm -q NetworkManager
[root@localhost log]# ll /var/log/messages*
-rw------- 1 root root 249341772 2008-08-25 21:06 /var/log/messages
the above size of the 'messages' file is just after i deleted it and rebooted the system.
upgrade kde to the latest from the 'updates-testing' repo.
Steps to Reproduce:
i don't think that line should be in thousands of numbers in that file.
the 'messages' file should not be bloated like that.
pl tell me what all i have to tell you for a clearer diagnosis.
