Description Braden McDaniel 2009-06-17 02:07:41 EDT
Description of problem:
NetworkManager shows the tooltip status as "Networking disabled".  However, the "Enable Networking" right-click menu entry is checked.  Firefox and yum work fine; so clearly there is a functional network connection.  However, apparently NetworkManager is reporting this erroneous status to other apps; for instance, gpk refuses to try to download packages because it claims there is no network connection.

This is with a clean install of Fedora 11.

Unfortunately I have no idea what going wrong here, hope Dan have a clue.

Dan, can you please take a look into https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=348266

There are approx thousands of this messages.

Looks like more a dbus error?

I restarted NetworkManager and the problem appeared to go away. I have restarted the machine a couple of times since then and I have not seen a recurrence. Maybe there was a problem that was addressed by some D-Bus update.

I'll reopen if this happens again; but for now, WORKSFORME.
