Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 982899
8.3.1. Establishing a Wired (Ethernet) Connection
Last modified: 2017-07-11 15:42:43 EDT
Description of problem:
In section 7.3.1:
Default connection no longer called 'em1'
No field for 'connection name'
you can add new settings for the network under different profiles by selecting 'add profile...'
you can remove/reset a profile by going to the 'options' button under the profile and selecting the 'reset' item on the left, and then choosing to either 'reset' or 'forget'
edit: with current revisions, this is now 8.3.1, also, to clarify the 'no field for connection name' comment, this is called simply 'Name:' in the identity menu of the connection dialogue
This is now here:
Under this heading:
Configuring the Connection Name, Auto-Connect Behavior, and Availability Settings
I have made some updates, will appear in the next build.
I made some updates for Fedora 21 but another review would be a good idea.
2.2.5. Configuring a Wired (Ethernet) Connection
Checking Fedora 23.
Saving Your New (or Modified) Connection and Making Further Configurations
If you use nm-connection-editor, the text is correct (in the section mentioned), but if you use the GNOME tool, the names are on the left and change as follows:
s/802.1X Security tab/Security view/
s/IPv4 Settings tab/IPv4 view/
s/IPv6 Settings tab/IPv6 view/
In both cases I see the GUI has 802.1x where it should be 802.1X
If you use nm-connection-editor you will see privacy extensions option for IPv6.
MATE desktop uses the nm-connection-editor GUI.
Its hard describing GNOME 3 GUI things
I see I already updated the wording in the Wi-Fi section
Then, to configure:
click Security and proceed
click IPv4 and proceed
Easy option is to just make Wired the same, to describe only GNOME 3. Other option, is to make the descriptions mere generic, when times allows.
