Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 708431
"Options" button is disabled in Network Manager
Last modified: 2012-12-22 19:25:16 EST
Description of problem: It was working properly when I installed Fedora 15 on my machine. But when I enabled IPV6 in Network Manager, I got blocked from accessing Internet.
Then I tried to disable it by clicking on "Options" button in Network Manager. However, it remains disabled. I tried rebooting but it didn't work.
I also disabled IPV6 from the command line and that has also not enabled the "options" button in Network Manager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on Network Manager Icon. Open it. Click on Options button.
2. Click on IPV6 tab in Options dialog.
3. Enable IPV6 and save the changes.
IPV6 gets enabled alright. But there is no way of re-entering "Options" dialog from Network Manager as it gets greyed out.
I should be able to access Options dialog in Network Manager and undo the changes.
Using Fedora 15. Also did a Yum update after fresh installation.
This is actually problem of control-center design. I think that it will be changed in Gnome 3.2.
Please edit your connection using nm-connection-editor.
