Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 811220
No password prompt when connecting to a wi-fi network
Last modified: 2013-08-01 05:20:33 EDT
Description of problem:
There is no prompt for password when trying to connect to a previously unknown secured wi-fi network
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try connecting to a unknown network (tried with Red Hat Guest in Brno office)
Password prompt shows up
I just tried this in Fedora 16 with kde-plasma-networkmanagement-0.9.0.3-3 and NetworkManager-0.9.4-6.git20120521.fc16 and the manager opened a whole window with network configuration on the tab where I was expected to enter the password.
There is a still a minor bug present, however - during the first attempt to connect, there was a "Connection failed" message displayed. But immediately (about a second) after that, it managed to connect without any further interaction.
What is the situation like in Fedora 17, please? Thank you.
the kde-side of this should be identical on f16 and f17
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
