The project has been pushed to upstream and the plug-in is enabled by default for >=networkmanager-0.8.2.
I’m glad to see that many people are interested in this project. Hope the progress could make you more pleased 🙂
Since I started coding even before the acceptance of my proposal, the plug-in is almost implemented. It could already be used out of box right now. Welcome you to join and test. The following is some details.
#Project Information ==================== Home page: http://gitorious.org/gentoo-networkmanager-plugin Wiki page: http://gitorious.org/gentoo-networkmanager-plugin/pages/Home Robert helped me push the plug-in to his layman, it's very easy for you to join and test now. Use "layman -a dagger" and you will see networkmanager-0.8-r100
Although the plug-in could be used out of box, you may find some further configuration helpful: http://gitorious.org/gentoo-networkmanager-plugin/pages/Configuration I've created an sample configuration. It doesn't include everything but just an example of further configuration. http://gitorious.org/gentoo-networkmanager-plugin/pages/Sample# Features Implemented ====================== ## Wired Network and Wireless Network 1. DHCP network configuration 2. Static network configuration 3. DNS servers configuration 4. DNS search configuration 5. Routes configuration 6. Wireless adhoc network ## Wireless Network Security (both in /etc/conf.d/net and wpa_supplicant.conf) 1. LEAP 2. WEP 3. WPA/WPA2 Personal 4. WPA/WPA2 Enterprise (TTLS and PEAP have been tested) ## PPPoE Network ## IPv4 and IPv6 Configuration ## Monitoring Changes made to /etc/conf.d/net, /etc/conf.d/hostname, /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf will be monitored and reported to NetworkManager. That means your changes to configuration file will immediately change your network settings without restarting anything! :–) To sum up, all the required features mentioned in my proposal have been implemented. Besides that, You will also find some new features that makes this plug-in easier to use and control. # Known Issues ============== The WPA-EAP methods - LEAP and TLS haven't been fully tested. Wireless adhoc network hasn't been fully tested. # Future Plan ============= Since the plug-in has almost been finished, I'll consider supporting the writing option which is the optional feature mentioned in my proposal. Before that, testing of current features is more important in my opinion.
