network-manager-applet needs recompiling for -current


Hello, guys.

I installed -current a few days ago, and nm-applet was crashing ~5 seconds after being run.

So I recompiled it from the SlackBuild and now it works properly.

Shall I report this somewhere?

This was fixed on May 31st as I understand it.

Code:
xap/network-manager-applet-1.8.12-x86_64-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched crash bug. Thanks to gmgf.

Yes it was and that made me so happy for a couple of days. There is still no Quit option from the systray applet after all these years. I run this to kill it from starting on any desktop... until the next update,
Code:
rm -v /etc/xdg/autostart/nm-applet.desktop
I use nmtui because it just works. I even use it to set static addresses for my wireless devices, and never "connect automatically" as I was taught back in the olden days.

Lockywolf can mark this thread Solved because hitest is correct, the issue was fixed with that May31 update and nm-applet no longer crashes.

Thanks.
