Re: [opensuse-factory] Network Stack in 12.3

As many are surely aware, there are 'funny' issues in 12.3 when it comes
to the network stack.
this doesn't seem to be fixed with RC2/the current software stack.

I still have issues like /etc/resolv.conf not getting update anymore if
I connect to a VPN.

Even worse during an RC2 DVD installation without automatic
configuration the network didn't work in stage 2 and the network
interface was called em1 instead of eth0 while the LiveCD didn't had
this problem.

On my machine, I experienced WiFi not being able to connect at all
(Intel chip).
=> Updating the kernel-firmware package (Used Larry's pkg!) worked
around this..

Then, NetworkManager and sysconfig seem to cause real pain. sysconfig
was updated to 0.80.x (and a respective change added to NM). Now,
whenever I use this configuration (tested on cable/LAN), then there is
either no default route set, or /etc/resolv.conf is not being written.

Having my system back in shape by reverting to sysconfig 0.76.8 and
reverting NM to not make use of sysconfig 0.8 features got me running

Don't get me wrong: I don't say we should kill the progress of
sysconfig, but we should postpone this for 13.1, as in my opinion we are
way to late in the release to figure out what all goes wrong and needs
fixing (the issue is larger than it looks at first, just look at issues
caused by this like,
where yast does not know how to perform the switch anymore between ifup
and NM.

As such, I very much vote for
- Inclusion of kernel-firmware update, as prepared by Larry
- Revert sysconfig to 0.78.8
- Revert the change in NetworkManager

NOTE: Even doing this revert will leave machines which HAD these
packages in a 'weird' state: NETWORKMANAGER=yes/no was removed
from /etc/sysconfig/network/config with sysconfig 0.80 and rolling back
to 0.78.8 adds =no to the system. So those machines might be in a very
odd stage... yet, this is a 'rather' small subset of systems which we
can possibly manage.
So it seems that your suggested changes weren't integrated?
