Bug Description

Binary package hint: cnetworkmanager

On Natty (using NetworkManager 0.8.2 and above), cnetworkmanager fails in a number of ways due to rework in NetworkManager on the DBus API.

mtrudel@demeter:~$ cnetworkmanager -a
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/cnetworkmanager", line 178, in <module>
    aap = dev["ActiveAccessPoint"]

    value = super(DBusClient, self).__getitem__(key)

This bug was fixed in the package cnetworkmanager - 0.21.1-1.1ubuntu1

cnetworkmanager (0.21.1-1.1ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/nm_0-8-2_dbus_api.patch: Unbreak as much as possible
    of cnetworkmanager to work with NM 0.8.2 and above. Some DBUS API
    changes broke ap listing, connection, etc. Which really should work
    for the package to be useful. (LP: #677589)
