Bug#598848: gnome-nettool: On kfreebsd is mostly non-functional.

Package: gnome-nettool
Version: 2.30.0-1
Severity: important
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org

On kfreebsd the various networking tools of gnome-nettool
(Applications->System Tools->Network Tools) generally do not work and
using them causes the whole application to lock up. The Devices tab has
missing information on the network card such that it is Ethernet and
what its hardware address is. When run from the command line, using the
tools produce error messages to the console such as:

kvm_open: kvm_nlist: No such file or directory


netstat: kvm not available: inet6: No such file or directory

It appears that gnome-nettool (and perhaps some of the libraries and
programs it relies on) have not been adapted for kfreebsd so leaving
gnome-nettool mostly non-functional on kfreebsd.
