Fedora Linux 8640 Published by

A NetworkManager update is available for Fedora Core 3

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : NetworkManager
Version : 0.3.4
Release : 1.1.0.fc3
Summary : Network link manager and user applications
Description :
NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available at all times. It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not intended for usage on servers. The point of NetworkManager is to make networking configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible. If using DHCP, NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.
