 Just a question

Is there any difference between the "prerelease" shipped with SUSE 10.1 and the final 0.1 version?

Sure. First of all, loading a key from KWallet is now deferred until it's actually needed (i.e. no more entering your wallet password when KNetworkManager is starting). Tray icon is double-buffered so gears don't flick. Internally, we implement new code to keep networks in sync with storage and fixed numerous bugs.

Is there anyway it can pull information from kwallet without having to open the wallet?
To me it's intuitive that you use kwallet, but I think having to open the wallet, just to connect to a wireless network, defeats the purpose of kwallet being private.
It would be much nicer if knetworkmanager could query the wallet without opening it, so it could connect on boot up without having to enter a password.
Otherwise it's awesome!

Alas, KWallet doesn't provide means to peek into it - it's opened automatically when you try to read something and it is now controlled by an app.

Is there a way that KnetworkManager can store its keys somewhere OTHER than the wallet?

Do these keys really need that level of security? Several users of an office laptop ALL need to enter the same silly key to their personal wallets just to access the company network.

I'd like to have an option for less secure storage of these keys. They just don't warrant this annoying pop up when you try to connect.

My users are saying, I just logged in, why do I have to enter the password again?

Some have put blank passwords in their wallet to avoid this which sort of defeats the wallet all together just because of Knetworkmanager thinking this is a super security issue.

Come-on, guys, how bout it?

IMHO, you are absolutely right - I do hate KWallet's password dialog either. Unfortunately, a KDE app *should* store evrything sensible in the wallet - it's a kind of architecture requirement. It's annoying, I know and I'd prefer having KWalllet with no password, like Firefox's Password Manager. This "bug" should be addressed to KWallet developers - file a feature request on bugs.kde.org and ask them to make KWallet password optional or required only for certain apps or.. .whatever.

As Val already explained, there are quite a few changes. If you're too lazy to build KNetworkManager 1.1 just wait for the online update, it should be available within the next days.

 Doesn't work!

Hi! The application looks wonderful on the screenshots from the homepage. But it looks like on my FC5 machine, it doesn't work.

Connection to D-BUS system message bus failed:
Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory.

Can you please help me?

Thank you very much!

Please check whether D-Bus is running. As I'm not familiar with FC5 I'd suggest getting in touch with your distribution maintainers if you have troubles.

 CentOS 4?

 
 by amiliv on: Nov 3 2006
 
Score 50%

Is it possible to compile KNetworkManager on CentOS4 (or RHEL4)?

CentOS4 and RHEL4 have older versions of packages than listed in KNetworkManager requirements (KDE 3.3.1, dbus 0.22). Are those requirements "this is what we tested/support but might work with older versions too", or are they "doesn't work with anything older than this, period".

Thanks,
Alex

I guess the real "minimum requirements" is NetworkManager>=0.6.2. Although D-BUS looks pretty old, it's worth trying to compile KNM on your platform.

Thanks. I got it to compile. That unsermake requirement was ugly. But managed to snatch the source for it. Would be nice if it was possible to comple without it (looks like something Suse specific?).

However, it seems that I'll have to wait for CentOS 5 to be able to use it. The kernel is simply too old (no support for scaning of wireless networks, at least not on my card). Actually, it seems NetworkManager doesn't see (or want to use) the card at all.

I have a simple network - one computer has DSL connection to internet and it shares it with Wifi in Ad-Hoc mode.
It's passord protected with ASCII. In SUSE 10.1 I can't get knetwork manager to connect to it althou from command line it's as simple as

iwconfig ath0 mode Ad-Hoc
iwconfig ath0 key restricted s:*****
dhclient ath0

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
