Name        : wicd
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 1.7.0
Release     : 6.fc14
URL         : http://wicd.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Wireless and wired network connection manager
Description :
Wicd is designed to give the user as much control over behavior of network
connections as possible.  Every network, both wired and wireless, has its
own profile with its own configuration options and connection behavior.
Wicd will try to automatically connect only to networks the user specifies
it should try, with a preference first to a wired network, then to wireless.

This package provides the architecture-dependent components of wicd.

Update Information:

This update fixes tracebacks that show up when the client tries to connect to a non-running daemon via D-Bus.  The client is exited immediately with some kind of message to the user telling them the daemon is not running.

* Tue Aug  9 2011 David Cantrell <dcantrell at redhat.com> - 1.7.0-6
- Actually apply the D-Bus connection failure patch (#713109)
* Fri Aug  5 2011 David Cantrell <dcantrell at redhat.com> - 1.7.0-5
- Catch D-Bus connection failures and prevent abrt reporting (#713109)
* Fri Oct 22 2010 David Cantrell <dcantrell at redhat.com> - 1.7.0-4
- Use cPickle instead of deepcopy in configmanager.py (#645251)
* Wed Aug 25 2010 David Cantrell <dcantrell at redhat.com> - 1.7.0-3
- Remove hard dependency on the base package by wicd-common.  The
  base package is arch-specific and contains optional components
  for wicd.  If it is present, wicd will make use of it, but it is
  not required for normal functionality.

  [ 1 ] Bug #713109 - wicd crashes when daemon is not running
