Description niburu1 2010-09-28 17:59:15 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.1) 
OS:                Linux

I can't connect to eduroam networks using knetworkmanager. However, I CAN connect using nm-applet instead (with the same settings).

Reproducible: Always

Have the same problem. It seems the certificate can't be parsed. Here's the output from /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log:

Running "cat cacert.pem | grep -v "CERTIFICATE" | base64 -d > cacert.dem", where cacert.pem is the input certificate, and cacert.dem is the output, worked for me. This requires having a local copy of the certificate. The workaround is described in the bug https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=209673.

Works for me. However I found that in KNM you have to enter "Anonymous Identity" whereas in nm-applet that's not always needed.
