Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 509930
gstreamer should have an option to ignore NetworkManager
Last modified: 2009-10-06 07:23:13 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, gstreamer should offer an option to ignore
NetworkManager, preferably enabled by default.
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).
Easy fix, just set UseNetworkManager to false in /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf
