[Debian-olpc-devel] Bug#511495: sugar: Collaboration not working

After about 12 hours of various debugging attempts, I finally found the
problem: /etc/network/interfaces contains an additional "up"-rule for
activating Wake-On-LAN on eth0. This caused network-manager to ignore
this device, so Sugar wasn't seeing any internet connection and didn't
even try connecting to the Jabber server.
: Sugar starts plugins for both link-local and server-based
collaboration, but only ever uses one of them. The server-based one uses
NetworkManager to wait for a valid IPv4 address and thus won't be
activated if NetworkManager isn't handling the internet connection.
> Only devices that are *not* listed in /etc/network/interfaces or
which have been configured "auto" and "dhcp" (with no other options) are
managed by NM.
There doesn't seem to be any way to enable Wake-On-LAN via
: There's currently no way to let a interface be managed by
NetworkManager (which seems to be required for it to be shown to Sugar)
_and_ activate Wake-On-LAN via custom "up"-rule.
I can work around this by moving the ethtool line into rc.local (it's a
hardwired interface, so no hotplugging), but it's rather ugly and really
unexpected. Will file seperate bugs about it, though.
