patch for /usr/share/wicd/curses/netentry_curses.py


I installed slackwarearm current as of 05/03 today. While configuring a wireless connection using wicd-curses via ssh while still wired to a banana pro I recieved this traceback when I tried to save my settings.
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1149, in call_update_ui
    self.update_ui(True)
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 97, in wrapper
    return func(*args, **kargs)
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1161, in update_ui
    self.handle_keys(input_data[1])
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/wicd-curses.py", line 1040, in handle_keys
    self.diag = WirelessSettingsDialog(pos, self.frame)
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/netentry_curses.py", line 503, in __init__
    self.set_values()
  File "/usr/share/wicd/curses/netentry_curses.py", line 544, in set_values
    wireless.GetWirelessProperty(networkID, 'bitrate')
ValueError: dbus.Boolean(True) is not in list
The patch below is based on a netentry_curses.py found here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/wicd/+bug...ntry_curses.py

It will fix the problem. It has been tested by me today after patching the original /usr/share/wicd/curses/netentry_curses.py which was installed from slackwarearm-current/extra/wicd/wicd-1.7.4-arm-1.txz.

As I suspect that this problem exists on x86 too, you should move this to the main forum; unless it can be proved that it's ARM only in which case I'll apply it locally.

Just move this thread into the main forum - it'll probably take a minute or two for someone to validate that the bug exists in -current.

I couldn't figure out how to do it. I did contact monitors but nothing happened
