Ok, I just tested this combination.
libnm-* libs
network-manager 0.8

And this combination works more or less fine for me.
I can activate existing connections (system/user), create new ones, delete
existing ones.

The only issue I can confirm is, that indeed, the Enable/Disable network button
is not selectable. (The reason for this is, that in, there is a
distinction between user intiated or system initiated state changes and the new
nm-gnome makes use of this new API which nm 0.8 doesn't offer).

That said, while I agree, that bumping the dep on nm to >= in nm-gnome
is probably the right thing to do, the severity grave is not justified given
that I'm still able to use nm-applet.

How did you end up with a disabled networkmanager?
Did you disable it before you upgraded or did you have a failed suspend/resume
in between?


Did you perhaps disable network, upgrade nm-gnome and afterwards you

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
