Sounds like the old "interface not managed by
Some Gnome apps rely on NM to tell them if the machine is connected. If
the interface is not managed by NM, they don't realize the connection
works. This happens to Evolution for example. Luckily yum is not a Gnome
app and therefore is not confused.
Solution: mark the interface as NM-managed (in system-control-network).
It is certainly true that I stop and disable NM every time I
catch it. It may have potential that only developers can see, but for me
as for others here, it's nothing but trouble.
That being so, wouldn't marking the interface as NM-managed cause
it to *be* NM-managed??
That's not worth it. Even with ethernet cables, let alone
wirelessly; I'd be offline -- really offline, unable to use email, Pan,
or any browser -- all the time, instead of just gpk some of the time.
IOW, the opposite of a solution.
How about trying something like "yum remove NetworkManager"??
Would that wake those apps up?? Or even make them smell the coffee?
