Description of problem:

The latest rawhide (with a previously working anaconda- and a *new* NetworkManager fails to activate networking.  Not sure if anaconda needs to be changed to accommodate an NM change, or if NM has a bug.  Happy to reassign as needed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

 * NetworkManager-0.7.1-2.git20090414.fc11.i586
 * anaconda-

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot rawhide installer
2. Select lang/keymap
3. Select URL installation method
4. Select NIC, then select DHCP
Actual results:

 There was an error configuring your network device

 [ RETRY ]

tty4 shows (see attachment) ...

nm-system-settings: update: assertion `context != NULL' failed

Expected results:

Dan - any idea what's going on here?
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2009-04-16 08:25:12 EDT
Looks like it requires a fix in NM, not anaconda's fault.
Comment 3 James Laska 2009-04-16 08:35:14 EDT
reassigning to NM

I tested today's build (17-Apr-2009 12:02) on PS3 game console, and this problem seems to be fixed.
