Summary: kernel panic when connecting to wireless network
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: Factory
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major

Connecting to my WPA-PSK network failed with knetworkmanager, so I tried with
nm-applet, which works but causes a kernel panic a few seconds after the
notifiaction window tells me that it connected successfully.

In the meantime knetworkmanager was changed to fix the connection issue and now
causes a kernel panic too when connecting.

Either this is just a coincidence or the fixes in knetworkmanager trigger the
same (NetworkManager) bug as nm-applet did already before.

This is a MSI Wind netbook with a RTL8187 wlan chipset and pae kernel. The
kernel panic for nm-applet did already happen a week ago and did not go away
with any factory update in the last days. Zypper (d)up shows no updates
available, so I guess that my packages are up-to-date.

I'll CC Will Stephenson as he committed the changes to knetworkmanager and
might know which bits are now the same as in nm-applet and did not exist

Reproducible: Always
