Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 466635
evolution starts always offline
Last modified: 2008-10-12 11:57:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Since some updates recently evolution is always starting in Offline-Mode
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 8, Kernel 18.104.22.168, Evolution 2.12.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run evolution under F8 with IMAP accounts
evolution is always offline when startet
after the start, evolution should connect to the internet automatically
The issue occurs since the update of avahi-autoipd which first conflicted with an older avahi-package that was left on the system. before that update everything was fine.
It was the NetworkManager which was installed as a dependency and started automatically. The NWM took control over the network behavior of evolution. Turning NWM off solved this.
If possible I would like to know why this has become a dependency and why it is started per default?
