"Networking system disabled" message when connected to the network
Last modified: 2011-04-30 23:24:19 EDT
Description of problem: "Network disabled" message when connected to the network, should be "Network enabled"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to network
2. check error message
"Network disabled" message
"Network enabled" message
The problem is - knm uses partially NM 0.8 compat interfaces but the main NetworkManager object is from 0.9 and it NM 0.9 changes NM_STATEs to more granular system (compare http://projects.gnome.org/NetworkManager//developers/spec-08.html#type-NM_STATE and http://projects.gnome.org/NetworkManager/developers/migrating-to-09/spec.html#type-NM_STATE) not documented in migration guide (only new device states are documented).

XML introspection patch
Ops, sorry, it really uses Compat interface... But still somehow related to improper state processing.
The problem is clear now - it does not use generated definitions from XML introspection file but unfortunatelly from NetworkManager.h (from NetworkManager-devel package) that's already in version 0.9. It should not work but there's a #define for compat reasons that assignes NM_STATE_CONNECTED value of NM_STATE_CONNECTED_GLOBAL.
I'll post the patch tomorrow.
