KDE Control Module crashes when creating Mobile Broadband connection

On my Lenovo T410 (openSUSE 11.4 KDE - 64bit) I have mobile broadband. Gobi-loader is installed and working properly.

However when I try to setup mobile broadband connection the KDE Control Module crashes. Tried many times also after reboots, though KDE Control Module keeps crashing.

Anyone any idea how I can fix this?

Thank you very much in advance

up for this post. i’m having the same problem. never encountered this problem with 11.3

I did a second install, now openSUSE 11.4 KDE from DVD. Interesting to see that DVD version installs knetworkmanager, the live KDE CD installs plasmoid-networkmanagement instead.

With knetworkmanager I do not have a problem creating Mobile Broadband connection. Does anyone have an idea how I can start Mobile Broadband with knetworkmanager?


i’ve opened a bugreport on 2011-03-10, looks that your problem is the same like mine
You can at your comments there, i hope it will be fixed soon aa possible

sorry for my bad english :wink:


Cause provider database is missing. Set package ‘mobile-broadband-provider-info’ from here and have a lot of fun rotfl!. But I used Fedora 14 x64DVD.iso as local repos.

The provider-db is installed,


Sorry, wrong answer

My controlplasmoid didn’t crash, if i add a new connection, it crash if i try to connect to an existing entriy, here t-mobile.
