Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 864609
All settings disappeared after upgrade
Last modified: 2012-10-22 09:04:36 EDT
Description of problem:
It looks like all my NetworkManager settings are lost somewhere or at least not being recognized by this new NetworkManager running on my rawhide machine
since it seems all my VPN, modem, eth0 settings are still laying in their dirs in /etc/NetworkManager and /etc/sysconfig.
It seems 'nmcli' to still list all the connections properly - but nm-applet
doesn't provide them - so it hard to tell to which package file this bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
If nmcli or other D-Bus clients sees the data, the nm-applet is probably misbehaving.
Do you see any errors regarding NM in /var/log/messages?
nm-applet logs are directed to ~/.xsession-errors. Or you can run it in a terminal and see output there.
I think, the part of the problem could have been, that upgrade was made on live machine - thus nm-applet could have been possibly confused if the NM has changed?
It seems that after next upgrade and machine reboot problem has gone away.
(And came a new one - when normal Wifi connection is being reported with no-signal icon (all little bars are white instead of blue).
Using this version.

ok, we'll assume it was something having to do with mismatched daemon/applet or something.

if you're still seeing that, please file a new bug
Ok - finally played a bit a get to the trick how this happens.
So the key part here is - the I've to start Xsession on wired docked T61.
Then I remove T61 from dock and I try to use Wifi network.
When the first connection happens - icon with signal quality has no 'blue bar' even thought connection is OK.
Then if I disconnect and reconnect - icon get all bars blue and looks ok.
So the important part in this seems to be starting Xsession in dock station.
If I start my Xsession undocked - it's ok all the time.
Reliably happens with:
So my problem is probably this bug: 832153
