Re: knetworkmanager starts with Wireless disabled
There's a small checkbox in knetworkmanager when you click the symbol in the KDE panel that reads "enable wireless connections" which needs to be checked for knetworkmanager to, surprise surprise, enable wireless connections. This checkbox was not checked after I restarted the laptop but disabled. I had to manually click on it, then wait a few seconds for knetworkmanager to automatically connect to my pre-configured wireless network.
Anyway, it's a mood point anyway. I've given that laptop to my wife yesterday, with Windows 7 Professional on it. We initially intented to use this laptop as successor to the S10 because our users were not too happy with the keyboard but have now switched to the U350. The two company laptops for the next few years are the Thinkpad T510 and the Ideapad U350. But run Fedora just fine, I even managed to get the internal 3G card up and running.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and well preserved piece, but to skid across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting GERONIMO!
