I hope this has been already fixed, we currently have an RC4.

Anyway, you can run it again and start the network manually before you
try to add that additional source:
See this

Ctrl+Shift+X -- opens xterm (`exit` or `Ctrl+d` to close it)
Ctrl+Alt+F2 -- switches from Qt to console (Alt+F7 to go back)

then type `rcnetwork start` and see what happens ;)

Dunno, maybe you have configured your network interface to shut down
(but I doubt you did).
