I and others wrote a bug for 9.04 because we could not get wirelessI have never had the problems you describe with key-ring. Default
working after we got a lot of updates. It appears to me now working with
9.10 alfa 3 that the Key-chain is the thing that causes confusion when
setting up wireless.
Here is what happened with 9.10. It came up with no Internet after
installing on the hard drive. Everything else was fine. I right clicked
the two monitor in the upper right edge of the screen, and a panel came
down showing the 3 wireless signals I receive now at home. I selected my
own and a new panel came up asking for my router password. I gave it and
expected the network manager to start getting the Internet but no.
Another panel came up asking for me to put in a password for a
key-ring! I put in a simple password, and THEN the Internet started working.
After a re-boot again the 9.10 comes up without Internet working. This
time you right click the monitors and the key-chain panel wants you to
give it a password and when you do, it works.
Now on 9.04 I went through all this and then tried "wicd" and never
looked back. This replacement for network manager after a reboot has
Internet ready before the rest of the system is started!
My question to the group is this: Is anyone using wireless Internet
still using network manager on 9.04? If so are you using the key-ring
password like I did?
installs every time. Since before I can remember and this is maybe back
to Edgy, I install and select my wireless AP and enter the information
and connect. Never prompted for a keyring password.
Current NM is awesome for me, switching APs and with some WPAsupplicant
patches, it's flawless on my corporate LEAP network.
never came up until version 9.04 and your email makes me think you have
never used 9.04 so you have no background to talk from.
I jumped into Jaunty when it was Alpha 4, Karmic when it was Alpha 2.
Before that i always waited for RC images before jumping in. I always
do a fresh install so that no flakiness is left behind. I have /home on
a separate partition, so moving data is easy.
replacement for NM. I did write a bug to Jaunty about the gmail.key and
other encombering matter that made NM not work well.
I was asked last week by Pedro to d/l Karmic alfa 3 and see if it has
the same problem as 9.04 has. I did that and Karmic has exactly the same
Read back a few emails and see how many other people have this problem
and what they did to correct for it.
Finally I think your a liar. There is no way you could miss this
problem IF your using wireless.
Your condescending attitude is usually amusing until you direct it at
me. I am no liar and I'm telling you that I've never had the keyring
problem. The last time I experienced a keyring request for accessing
wireless on 1st time setup, I did what was recommended, set my keyring
password to my login password and I was never prompted again. This was
many releases ago.
I've had Intel wireless and Atheros wireless and never ever experienced
the level of difficulty you seem to have.
You should not be calling people a liar unless you can prove it.
