Fedora 9 PackageKit — No Network Connection

Add/Remove Software (gpk-application) keeps complaining there’s no network connection even though there is. It seems this is a bug in version 0.1.0 that uses NetworkManager to get network status. Running yum update will update to 0.2.x which is supposed to fix the problem.

I’m now running 0.2.5 and it’s still broken. Is this a hint to run NetworkManager? I’m stubborn, so I tried getting rid of Network manager. In System, Administration, Services, I disabled NetworkManager in all runlevels and stopped the process. I enabled network in runlevels 3-5 and restarted the network. Now the installer is happy.
