Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 50734
internet-druid uses the provider name as a "connection name"
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
Internet-Druid's Modem configuration sequence uses the "Provider Name" as
the connection name. This is really confusing. Further, it seems to want
you to choose a provider from the list, which only has German ISPs (bug#
50669). This is also inconsistent with the neat Add->Modem tool, which
allows to choose the "Device Name" (bug #50672) which is really the
connection name (apparently). If internet-druid is used to attempt to
create two entries with the same provider name, the first entry is overwritten.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run through internet-druid
2. Try to figure out where the connection name is, or what exactly a
"Provider Name" does.
3. Try to use internet-druid to create two entries with the same Provider Name.
Confusion about what the "Provider Name" box does and what it is for (you
can't leave it blank). Confusion about a way to name the configuration.
A "Connection Name" box, and a "Providers who require special
configuration" descriptor of some type on the "Provider Name" listing.
Something that is straightforward. Also, no configuration in neat should
be overwritten by internet-druid.
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
It's fixed in CVS.
