Some might have noticed that on openSUSE 11.1, NetworkManager isn’t able to connect to the internet with their mobile broadband device. The reason for this is the bundling of NetworkManager with ModemManager which currently doesn’t support some mobile broadband devices which worked with NetworkManager without ModemManager. The long term solution is to get these cards to work in ModemManager, but for now the better solution for some is NetworkManager built without ModemManager.
Below, I have listed the link to an OBS repository I have made for NetworkManager rebuilt without ModemManager. By installing these rebuilt packages, your mobile broadband device should now work, assuming it worked with NetworkManager before. If your mobile broadband device doesn’t work with the NetworkManager packages bundled on openSUSE 11.1 please make note of it in this thread. Also, if it doesn’t work with the packages bundled with openSUSE 11.1 or these packages make note of it in this thread as well.
