Re: what's behind the scenes of redhat-config-network-gui ?



Harald --

Thanks again. I tried again using redhat-config-network-1.2.15-1, redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.15-1, and rhpl-0.93.4-1, and it is still broken.

Here's a reproducer:

1. kickstart a box fresh
2. install latest versions of r-c-n, r-c-n-tui, and rhpl
3. click Hat menu / System Settings / Network
4. click "new"
5. select wireless connection
6. select the first wireless card from the "select wireless device" menu. (in my case, it's "Lucent Orinoco and Prism II-based PCMCIA wireless (eth1)")
7. enter the WEP key in the Key section of next screen
8. click next, then apply
9. /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth1:


# Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
# for the documentation of these parameters.
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=yes
GATEWAY=
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Wireless
DHCP_HOSTNAME=
IPADDR=
DEVICE=eth1
HWADDR=00:02:2d:6c:a8:5d
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
DOMAIN=
NETMASK=
ESSID=
CHANNEL=1
MODE=Managed
KEY=s:{my web key}
RATE=11Mb/s

[root studentc640 root]# rpm -qa redhat-config-network
redhat-config-network-1.2.15-1
[root studentc640 root]# rpm -qa redhat-config-network-tui
redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.15-1
[root studentc640 root]# rpm -qa rhpl
rhpl-0.93.4-1



Should I open a new bugzilla report, or attach this to existing bug @ https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=88566 ?

That's good news. I tried using redhat-config-network-1.3.1-1 from rawhide, and the bug is still there. It's somewhat different from the bugzilla report posted above, however. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=88566 is regarding improperly importing an existing wep key. What I've found here is that when you create a new wireless connection, it inserts "s:" into the new key that I've just entered via the GUI.

Am I using the corrected version? I didn't mess with the initscripts. However, I did update redhat-config-network-tui and rhpl. (redhat-config-network-tui=1.3.1-1, rhpl=0.108-2).

Thanks,

Aaron

the bugfix erratum is in the rhn queue. i didn't want to release another buggy version, so it took me 15 versions to stabilize it ... 1.2.15 will soon hit your up2date.
if you use the rawhide version you have to update your initscripts as well..

excellent. I see there's an update in rawhide as well.
Just wondering... why isn't that update released as part of Red Hat 9 updates, available on rhn and @ your friendly neighborhood apt repository? How does Red Hat decide what makes something worth being release as part of the updates?

have you got a KEY="YOUR WEP KEY" line in

ahhhh. In /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth1, what I have is:

KEY="s:{MY WEP KEY}"

I changed it, taking out the s:, and it now works.

So, what is this "s:" in the KEY entry? Where did it come from?
