Bug Description

Pretty much all NM integration tests fail on the wily-proposed version (1.0.4), as NM tears down the (fake) "remote" side of the hwsim wifi and veth interfaces. Turns out this is due to not respecting the local --config option any more, which blacklists these devices to avoid NM tearing them down at startup:

$ NetworkManager --log-level=debug --debug --config=/tmp/tmpyehdrfvu/NetworkManager.conf
NetworkManager-Message: <info> No config file found or given; using /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
NetworkManager[5227]: <info> Read config: /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf

In the Ubuntu packaging bzr I reverted most of the disabling of tests, and also tuned the timeouts back down to reasonable values. On top of that, if you change

to work around this bug, all the tests succeed again, at least on amd64. On i386 they still fail because NM crashes right away (bug 1492126).

This bug was fixed in the package network-manager - 1.0.4-0ubuntu3

network-manager (1.0.4-0ubuntu3) wily; urgency=medium

  * New upstream NM release post-feature-freeze. (LP: #1493934)
    (previous revisions never transitioned from proposed)

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * debian/tests/nm: Revert the previous disabling of tests, they are all
    conceptually still valid.
  * debian/tests/nm: Reduce timeouts to something reasonable; waiting 3
    minutes for detecing an AP should not count as "success", and it takes too
    long for tests to fail.
  * debian/tests/nm: Fix ColdplugWifi.test_no_ap: with 1.0 the state is now
    "UNAVAILABLE" instead of "DISCONNECTED"; so check for either.

  [ Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre ]
  * debian/patches/git_config_parse_cmdline_args_8a22a981.patch: don't shadow
    the config_cli parameter for early config with a local copy. (LP: #1492168)
  * d/p/0001-wwan-add-support-for-using-oFono-as-a-modem-manager.patch: fix
    signal handling for oFono using GDBus; it's a little simpler now, watching
    for signals in general and matching only ModemAdded/ModemRemoved. Inspired
    from urfkill code. (LP: #1492126)
  * debian/patches/git_fix_duplicate_unittest_names_7b70a840.patch: replace
    duplicate unit test names, which is a new restriction set by GLib.
