Summary: NetworkManager-kde does not represent connection
correctly & doesn't show an output of iwlist [interface]
Product: openSUSE 11.0
Version: RC 1
Platform: Other
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.0
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE3
AssignedTo: kde-maintainers@xxxxxxx
ReportedBy: ben.kevan@xxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
Found By: Beta-Customer

Much props for getting the 3 icons to fit into one (using NetworkManager-kde
from KDE BuildService) however the NetworkManager icon does not correctly
represent the current connection state as it did in previous versions of

Please see version below:
rpm -qa | grep Network | grep kde

This is disapointing to me and seems like a move backwards as many people use
that to see what connection method they are using.

Another thing in the previous versions of NetworkManager you could also veiw
Wireless Networks that were being broadcasts (must like the output of iwlist
[interface] scanning) however that is no longer the case, and you can only see
the one you are connected do (that I configured in YaST Network Devices).

I would have added this an enhancement but I feel they are actually
functionally cripling and hope that even if they don't make it for the initial
release of 11.0 that they are added as a functional update through the update
repository (instead of just "security updates").

If a newer version is being prepared for factory repo, then please feel free to
close with fixed and note that it's about to be released to factory and please
note when, so I can check and verify that there are no reprocussions.

Thanks for all the great work.
