man ifconfigleo2501 said:does it compile under freebsd? the only thing is holding me from trying freebsd is wicd, i use a netbook so i need a way to easily switch networks, maybe there's a CLI alternative
http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/docs/volunteer.htmlPort NetworkManager to FreeBSD. This will require someone with C programming experience, and a good knowledge of wireless networking in FreeBSD. Additionally, this will require some FreeBSD userland changes especially to ifconfig.
I am Nikhil Bysani, a junior at University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign. For Google Sumer of Code, I will port Netowork Manager to FreeBSD. Network Manager controls and manages network devices and settings, such as ethernet and wireless. I will port over the base system, and hopefully apply the patches upstream.
May 23 - 30th, Get Network Manager to compile on FreeBSD (no functionality)
May 30 - June 13th Get Ethernet working
June 13th - June 27th Get Wireless working.
June 27th - July 6th Pass test cases in ethernet/wireless.
July 6th - July 24th Have generally working NetworkManager daemon.
July 24th - August 17th Complete extra components such as plugins and nm-applet if possible, try to commit to upstream.
LOL, wpa_gui is written in QT mate (which is used by KDE) ;prhyous said:I would still be nice to have one that integrates with KDE.
There are various panel schemes with icons depending on your desktop environment.. But such a net-mgmt/wifimgr network widget does not exist. You simply need to call it up via the Gnome3 menu. You could also create a desktop shortcut.
