I deleted the file and pulled the power plug (no battery) then powered up
As expected, it didn't connect and my icon had a lock rather than a star.
I poked connect and it asked for a password. The first try didn't take,
maybe because I didn't get the password right. Trying again worked.
It created a new version of /home/olpc/.sugar/default/nm/networks.cfg which
differs from the old one only in time stamps and in having the bssids field
As far as I can tell, it's just like it was when I used Wpa.sh:
The icon for my AP has a little star.
It doesn't connect automatically on boot.
I can see the icon blinking for a while.
I assume that is when it is trying.
It works when I poke the icon.
That's after waiting for everything to stop blinking.
I've tried Restart-ing ~4 times by now.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
