Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 874279
Pre-hub network config screen sometimes shows up even when not needed (race condition)
Last modified: 2014-02-05 07:54:14 EST
For me and at least one other reporter - see http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1612035&postcount=138 - the pre-hub network config screen is shown even when it isn't needed.
Both of us have more than one network interface, one of which is a DHCP-able wired connection. So I think this may be the scenario that triggers the bug. If you have a wired connection which can be brought up with no configuration needed, but you _also_ have some other interface which would need configuration to work, you see the pre-hub network config screen, even though you really don't need to. It doesn't really break anything, but it's unnecessary and confusing.
oh, I hit this with Beta TC7, which was 18.24 - nothing in the 18.26 changelog indicates it'd be fixed there.
...though bcl says it might be, so I'll check with smoke15.
actually, it's 18.27 stuff.

The real cause is most probably described in A) of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=873468#c12. Additional non-configured iface shouldn't matter.
We don't have a fix for this yet.
Adjusting summary to be more accurate wrt comment #4.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '18'.
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 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 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 18'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 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
