Dialogs "Network->LAN Browsing->Guided LISa Setup" and "Information->Network Interfaces" don't show iterface list.
This happens because in order to read interface list one must use ifr_addr.sa_len. KDE sources contains this code enclosed in
The problem is that configure script doesn't check this feature.

I'm reporting the bug.
It affects not only kcm_lanbrowser but kcm_nics also. The bug is not in
the code of those modules. It is in the configure scripts of the
kdenetwork and kdebase distributions. As I have written in previous
message, these scripts doesn't check feature HAVE_SOCKADDR_SA_LEN.
Andriy I Pylypenko
+AC_CHECK_MEMBERS(struct sockaddr.sa_len, , ,
+ [#include <sys/types.h>
+ #include <sys/socket.h>
to the end of configure.in.in in kdenetwork makes it check for sa_len, at least. It still doesn't find any NICs for me in guided setup, though.
KInfocenter NIC display works fine.
