Provide support for configuring [keyfile] in conf file
Last modified: 2013-05-07 09:44:34 EDT
Description of problem:
It would be nice if there would be some 'clickable' way to configure
[keyfile] section in NetworkManager.conf file.
In the past (Bug 760291) I've been having troubles with X window display access because dhcp hostname of my machine has been changing between various networks.
While I've not yet managed to resolve the problem on the 'X-side' - I've figured out very simple solution on NM-side.
I've change my /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf to look like this:
It might be nice to have some GUI way to setup such configuration.
(If there is some already?? - I've not yet found it)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. While running X session suspend with dhcp hostname in network A
2. resume in Network B where dhcp gives different name
3. access to disable gets lost and could be recovered only by
playing with 'xauth' utils and setting new proper
(In fact this could be possible also managed by NM,
but using fixed hostname is for now easier to me.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
Actually, the current way of handling hostname is suppost to be via /etc/hostname but we forgot to do it for 'keyfile' which should be fixed.
