Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 871132
Protected wifi connection not enabled after secrets are set, user has to re-select it
Last modified: 2012-11-26 09:07:20 EST
Splitting off from Reartes Guillermo's report in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=855526#c26 :
It seems that when configuring a protected wifi connection in anaconda 18.19 (Beta TC6), you have to select the AP, enter the password, then select the AP again before it will connect. User probably expects it to connect immediately after entering the password.
This doesn't seem serious enough to merit blocker status, but possibly NTH. If not fixed, we should document it in CommonBugs.
I just tested this and wlan0 does not connect with TC6 Netinstall
tried reselecting wlan0 and also turning on/off/on
also continue and reselecting network
hit done and got error anaconda exception report
AttributeError 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'get'

Discussed at 2012-10-31 NTH review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-10-31/f18beta-blocker-review-6.2012-10-31-16.00.log.txt . Accepted as NTH, but we note this isn't really a showstopper of an issue, and you could possibly make things worse by poking it. So anaconda team, please review any fix for this carefully, and merge it only if you're really pretty confident about it. We don't want a 'eh, we think this might fix it, let's throw it at the wall and see if it sticks' fix.
anaconda-18.24-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing anaconda-18.24-1.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.

Works for me now in Beta-TC7.
anaconda-18.25-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
anaconda-18.26-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
anaconda-18.27-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
18.26 went stable. Closing. (Bodhi closing of bugs when updates go stable is currently broken).
