wheres wicd?

i enabled all the community repos & still no wicd- it even fails if i install the rpm from its website-
networkmanager is fecal matter

Well mine looks great and is sweet;)

As for your requirement. Patience I guess is the name of the game.

But there is nothing stopping you building it yourself
wicd - home

Got mine from -

Index of /repositories/home:/dmitry_serpokryl:/Enlightenment-cvs-core-metapackage/openSUSE_11.2

for 32-bit you need -


this set has been working fine for me. I don’t add the full repo since it is one of the spots to grab Enlightenment and I don’t care for some of the changes that come about on my system for other packages there. :slight_smile:

Now I can choose wicd, check dependencies manually & see them all report OK, and still keep my wicd fail due to unmet dependencies!
Thanks nonetheless.

As for building, that’s for source distros-

Right now ifupdown works.

I can’t upgrade (just switched from 11.1 to 11.2).
Input/output errors.
I’m using 64bit release.

I’ll wait a little bit more.

> networkmanager is fecal matter

you should DEMAND your money back!!

seeding 11.2 DVD (64) and GNOME Live CD (32 & 64)

This is the exact error I get trying to update the wicd package:

“Packagewicd could not be downloaded (input/output error)”

Error: IO:Failed to provide Package wicd- Do you want to retry retrieval?

I fixed downloading rpms through web browser, and installing them “by hand”.

Bye, bye.
