Description Richard W.M. Jones 2009-07-06 18:19:47 EDT
When NetworkMangler doesn't own every network in and out of
the box, gstreamer is unable to install new plugins:

The error message is:

"Cannot install when offline"

Like Firefox[1], gstreamer should offer an option to ignore
NetworkManager, preferably enabled by default.
Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2009-10-05 12:44:36 EDT
This isn't a gstreamer bug, the package installation is done by gnome-packagekit.

You'll only be allowed to call NetworkManager the way you did when the libvirtd bridging scripts stop sucking (bug #414341).
Comment 2 Richard Hughes 2009-10-06 07:23:13 EDT
Easy fix, just set UseNetworkManager to false in /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf
