    Default Overwriting repoistory app with one compiled from source

    Hey..
    As the kde networkmanager never seems to work reliably for me (nor does the gnome one) I installed wicd instead, first I tried to install it from source.. but it didn't work.
    So I uninstalled it and checked webpin, and the one from there seems to work.. but there is some bug when it tries to write the configuration file.
    After some googling I found out that this is solved in a version later.. so I compiled/installed the latest version on top of the webpin install.. now it seems to work.

    However.. YaST2 software management lists it as version 1.5.6-31-1 while the program itself tells me it's 1.5.8.
    Didn't add the repository from the webpin one-click, so this should be fine?

    * Axeia,

    not sure what the question is <sheepish look>

    You may want to contact Dmitry directly. He has asked for help testing wicd here in the forums before and he's surely interested in your findings.

    Just wondering if I wont get any strange errors later on in YaST by having replaced the files it installed.

    Though I'm not sure I'll stick to it, still couldn't get a PEAP connection to work. (WPA2 / PSK however now works 100% of the time!)

    I don't think so. Yast doesn't watch the app itself, just the rpm database. I don't know what happens though in case it tries to update it.
