Wicd doesn't start

I installed wicd (wicd, wicd-common wicd-kde, in my F16 KDE), but when I try

sudo chkconfig wicd on
an error happened, because

$ sudo service wicd status
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  status wicd.service
wicd.service - Wicd a wireless and wired network manager for Linux
          Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/wicd.service; enabled)
          Active: failed since Wed, 14 Mar 2012 11:54:10 -0300; 28min ago
        Main PID: 899 (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/wicd.service
and wicd doesn't start, and I should start wicd in another tty before login in kdm.

I prevoiusly execute

sudo chkconfig NetworkManager off

sudo service NetworkManager status
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  status NetworkManager.service
NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
          Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service; disabled)
          Active: inactive (dead)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/NetworkManager.service
I restart F16 several times but doesn't work...
