download and untar the tarball, then follow the instructions in the
INSTALL file, namely:

yum install python-devel
python setup.py configure
python setup.py install

Make sure NetworkManager is turned off like so:

chkconfig NetworkManager off

reboot, at which time you should see the wcid service start up shortly
after eth0 comes up. To bring up the butt-ugly-but-functional GUI, type:

wcid-client &

Starting up wired, wireless and VPN networks are all fairly intuitive.
And it works!

Assuming I can duplicate any of the above, I promise to immortalize it
in a wiki...

I built a (new) package of this now for FREEEEE. Tested. Fails. :)

yum install wicd


Right now it's complaining: "Couldn't find graphical sudo program" (this when
I'm running it as root, no less). I wonder which ones it will take. gar.

Anyway, mostly there but i dont think i'll look at it more for a day or so, so
if you figure that out let me know heh. Could just be missing dependency.


freeeee-package empower <--we'll see if that one will work.

Well, i haven't tested the sudo part yet (it only comes up if wicd daemon isn't
running), but I have it going now with the latest package.

Looks quite nice. If this thing is stable we'll use this for sure.

Funny the thread is *without* a GUI, but in the end it's what we got. heh.

Jeff,

FWIW, yum install wicd worked perfectly after
yum install python-devel

I didn't get any weird dependency messages after that. In fact, I'm logged into my "dingonet" wireless network via wicd as we speak...
