Comment 1 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2022-03-10 02:01:18 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 36-final by Fedora user nielsenb using the blocker tracking app because:

 Same as #643, #630. This is default functionality of a default application "For all release-blocking desktop / arch combinations, the following applications must start successfully and withstand a basic functionality test".

Comment 2 Brandon Nielsen 2022-03-10 02:05:30 UTC
This should probably be reassigned to the libnma component.

Start of a patch adding gtk4 support

I started migrating .ui files using 'gtk4-builder-tool simplify --3to4'

This seems to at least be enough to make the hidden networks menu appear with minimum warnings. It might also fix the WPA2 enterprise menu. I have not finished migrating all files. More testing needs to be done, as well as work on how to actually integrate it into the libnma specfile.

'<packing>' seems to be the major hangup:
