Mobile Broadband Fail after NetworkManager update

I have a Mobile Broadband connection (as NetworkManager calls it) that works very well until the latest update. Now it fails to connect 99.9% of the time. When it does connect it works very sluggishly.

I didn't update a second computer I have and it still works fine here. Both run F10 x86_64, both are fully updated (except for NM on this one).

Output of grep NetworkManager /var/log/messages | tail -100 from non working machine

Since posting this I've noticed that NM now causes a SELinux problem if the modem is plugged in while the computer is on (this hasn't happened since F8). I set it to permissive so that isn't stopping it working.

If no one can help can someone tell me how to reverse the update so I can install the old version and get it working again?

Hi again

Reverted back to NetworkManager-*-0.7.0-....svn4326 and it works
again. You can find those rpms e.g. with rpmfind http://rpm.pbone.net/
download all needed rpms you have installed (NetworkManager*) and then
force downgrade with
rpm -U --force <rpm>

regards max

Same problem on my eeepc running F10. I am having problem now to use my Huawei mobile broadband modem. Fail to establish connection and this SELinux warning on the NM trying to execute ./udevadm. Furthermore, now system boot always produces a kernel error (which prompting me to send the stacktrace back). However, I figure out that if I left the USB modem attached before rebooting then the SELinux thingy does not occur and NM is able to use the modem as per normal. It is beyond me to explain why.

On my desktop, NM seems to behave nicely but I am not using Huawei on my home desktop.

Thank you Max.

Worked perfectly, I'm online on this laptop for the first time in several days.

I used 0.7.0-1.git20090102.fc10.x86_64 as that is what I am using on the machine that worked but otherwise followed your post to the letter.

Thanks again

I'm having the same problem with my Huawei E220 3G Broadband modem not working after the update. However, the archives seem to have purged the last Fedoray Update version (NetworkManager-0.7.0-1.git20090102.fc10.i386.rpm), which works better than the version shipped with the original Fedora release. Anyone know of an archive still carrying the NetworkManager-0.7.0-1.git20090102.fc10.i386.rpm version?

I have this problem since I updated the system last week, the usb modem is working on and off, give me a lot of problem.

I have been so impressed with FC10 network manager since I installed last month, it work with all my connections, vpn and mobile broadband, but a single update ruin it all. I have since roll back the network manager and get it to work again.

I hope QA should be done on critical package before it was roll out for the update, and the fix out soon.

You can browse koji.fedoraproject.org. You can find all built versions of any package.
