Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 828452
system-config-network is a symbolic link to consolehelper, rather than to nm-connection-editor
Last modified: 2012-06-05 05:17:37 EDT
Description of problem:
To configure a DSL connection system-config-network cannot be used. It opens consolehelper tool with empty device list. After some time i discovered nm-connection-editor is the program to configure DSL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
version shipped with Fedora 17 release package.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ls -l /usr/bin/system-config-network
2. result: "/usr/bin/system-config-network -> consolehelper"
3. >system-config-network, opens a console utility with empty device list.
running system-config-network opens consolehelper utility.
running system-config-network should open nm-connection-editor utility.
Fresh Fedora 17 installation from DVD iso.
AFAIK the GUI (install system-config-network package, not just system-config-network-tui) should be able to configure DSL.
You are right that nm-connection-editor is its successor and that's the reason why we've deprecated system-config-network in rawhide (Fedora-18).
Closing as WONTFIX, thanks for your idea anyway.
