Re: Network manager and Gnome 3.12

It seems this is totally my fault (as always). By enabling Rhughes's Gnome 3.12 repo it's make my life harder and harder :) I don't blame him :)

So, sometimes my nm-applet trying to get IP address through DHCP for virtual interfaces which should have static address. When I check the output of ifconfig I can see the correct values, but when I open nm-applet edit connections dialog I can see dhcp where I should see static addresses :)

Here is my versions

NetworkManager.x86_64               1:         rhughes-f20-gnome-3-12-x86_64
NetworkManager-adsl.x86_64          1:         rhughes-f20-gnome-3-12-x86_64
NetworkManager-bluetooth.x86_64     1:         rhughes-f20-gnome-3-12-x86_64
NetworkManager-glib.i686            1:         rhughes-f20-gnome-3-12-i386
NetworkManager-glib.x86_64          1:         rhughes-f20-gnome-3-12-x86_64
NetworkManager-openvpn.x86_64       1:       updates
NetworkManager-openvpn-gnome.x86_64 1:       updates
NetworkManager-wwan.x86_64          1:         rhughes-f20-gnome-3-12-x86_64

Maybe the easiest way to get back to normal is to reinstall my machine and forget those experimental repos :))
