Description Orhan Sancaktar 2005-05-09 19:54:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
Some of our local coffe shops use a wireless service that has its ESSID Set to "Internet Oasis (FREE)".  When I try to associate with the network, the program give the error "invalid character in key/directory names".  This must be a valid character b/c i can connect manually without any problems using iwconfig.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run NetworkManager and NetworkManagerInfo
2. Select "InternetOasis (FREE)" network

Actual Results:  Bad key or directory name: "/system/networking/wireless/networks/Internet Oasis (FREE)/timestamp": ` ' is an invalid character in key/directory names
Bad key or directory name: "/system/networking/wireless/networks/Internet Oasis (FREE)/essid": ` ' is an invalid character in key/directory names

Expected Results:  Associate with the AP and obtain a DHCP lease.

Is there any way you can test NetworkManager-0.3.4-1.1.0.fc3, which has been in
FC3-updates for a while?  I believe that's fixed this problem and it should
escape GConf keys correctly.

A 'yum update NetworkManager' should install that version, otherwise look at:

Same error with NetworkManager-0.3.4-1.1.0.fc3.

Sorry about not updating before asking.
