Update breaks PPTP VPN is GNOME Shell
Last modified: 2013-07-25 17:20:07 EDT
After the update to NetworkManager-pptp-0.9.8.2-2.fc19, it is no longer possible to connect to PPTP VPNs using GNOME Shell. If you toggle the connection on, it will immediately flip to off. This seems to be because of the creation of the NetworkManager-pptp-gnome package post-release, which I guess should have been done only in rawhide. Installing this new package manually fixes the issue, but users should not be expected to install a new package to maintain previous functionality.
I'm not sure what would be the best thing to do at this point.
I think this is the Obsoletes Epoch problem...
