RE: Ubuntu Breezy / Problems Compiling


Thanks for the heads up. I had the same problem as Thomas, and removed
references to those calls. Network Manager 0.5.1 compiles fine now, but the
application is unable to detect any of my network devices now. The NM-applet
shows the right version number (0.5.1), but I get the "No network
connection" icon and my nm-applet contextual menu only shows only these
- Greyed "Connection information", 
- Greyed "Help",
- "About".

Do you have any idea on what may cause this?

Thanks in advance,

There is no workaround.  Right now the code that references this isn't
actually being used, but in the very, very near term it will be, and it
will be required to use wireless extensions > 19 so that we can support

If you really, really want to get it to work, look at the bottom of
NetworkManagerDevice.c and remove the stuff dealing wpa_ie and rsn_ie,
and also the bits of code that reference IW_EV_POINT_OFF (but keep the
'else' clause after the IW_EV_POINT_OFF check).
