Wicd 1.7.0-r1.ebuild which fixes bug
Jonathan's patch for fixing the issue
Description Phillip Merensky 2010-06-21 08:10:58 UTC
When using wicd-gtk and having scripts set for execution on connection or disconnection wicd-gtk stalls with "Disconnecting active connections" in the status bar. When using wicd-curses the bug did not occur to me. The bug is already filed upstream at https://bugs.launchpad.net/wicd/+bug/438402 but marked incomplete. However there is a working patch by Jonathan (Comment #17) yet. Because I had no time to wait on upstream inclusion and because wicd-1.6.2 is not longer in the tree, I wrote an ebuild which includes Jonathan's patch and thus fixes this issue. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a custom wired connection in wicd-gtk 2. Add scripts for execution on disconnection/connection 3. Try to connect to that connection Actual Results: Wicd stalls and thus is not usable. Expected Results: Successful connection. Workaround: Use Wicd-curses

This patch was applied long time ago. It is included in the 1.7.1 beta series that already has a stable version.
