Summary: KDE Network Control Module Cannot Manage the Network
Nor be Configured with a Static IP
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE4 Applications
AssignedTo: kde-maintainers@xxxxxxx
ReportedBy: alpha096@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
Found By: ---


User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.8)
Gecko/2009032600 SUSE/3.0.8-1.1.1 Firefox/3.0.8

KDE Control Module has a Network Manager for KDE4. This applet/widget sits in
the system tray next to the clocks default position. Under test conditions
where Yast is not managing the network in favour for Network Manager which is
also not managing the network there is a third network control module that
cannot manage the Network,

With this KDE control Module is is impossible to enter a static IP or Manual IP
as the ADD button does not function. I have the suspicion that this application
requires a MAC address that has to be entered manually as there is no auto
detect

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open KDE Network Control Module
2. Click ADD and select Manual IP.
3.Click ADD on the IP details screen and nothing happens.
4.The whole network is currently not managed by any application in KDE V11.1
Actual Results:
No Application manages the Network Connection

Expected Results:
We need to rationalise how many application can possibly manage the network
other than IFUP which cannot currently hold a static IP address.

The Management of the Network clearly has not ever been tested by either the
application Programer nor picked up in BETA. Its bad enough to have 4 different
applications to manage the network connection and even worse that none of them
function correctly.
