Hi Martin.

I have been working on making custom changes for Afghanistan deployments;
disabling 3G access is one of them.

As the resolution for this, the permissions for "*usr/sbin/modem-manager*"
have been set to  0000, and the change tested on a f14 image with gnome.
Following were the test cases that were carried out :

a. Checked if *"ps -aux | grep "modem-manager*" gave anything.
    It didn't, as expected.
b. Although the option to add a new modem connection *via GUI* was
available through nm-applet; however no connection could actually be
instantiated in practise, as expected.

I then moved on to checking on dextrose-builds-without-gnome (f11 based)
It was found that** there is no "/usr/sbin/modem-manager" on
dextrose-builds-without-gnome (although "usr/sbin/NetworkManager" was

So, my queries are ::

1. How does the "Modem Configuration" feature work in
    This is important, as additional customization may need to be done to
disable all 3G access attempts.

2. Is it possible to have a (3G) modem connection in
dextrose-build-without-gnome at all?

Looking forward to a reply.

(Thanks Anish, for pointing me to Martin.)
