Description (last modified by sgallagh) (diff)
As noted in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=586825 we handle changes in network status somewhat poorly. On those systems where NetworkManager is available and in-use, the backends should register with the NetworkManager D-BUS service to receive signals when the network status changes (connection dropped, added, changed).
When this signal is detected, if it disconnects or changes the interface the backend is relying on, I propose that we mark the backend offline immediately, so that events like screensaver unlock will immediately go to cached credentials.
- Status changed from new to assigned
- Summary changed from Register with NetworkManager for notifications to catch going online to reset offline status of back ends
