OpenSUSE Network :: Network Management Disabled After Start On 11.2
Dec 19, 2009
I tried connect to internet through iPhone (bluetooth tether), so I followed one tutorial... It said I have to change "networkmanager" to "ifup" in yast>network settings, and make some other changes... I did it, but I couldn't connect via iphone... OK... I put back all changes, also changed ifpu to networkmanager.
After reboot, Knetowrkmanager gives me "network management disabled" on startup, instead of list of my networks.
Of course, I google for solution, but without any luck. And then, I don't know why, I killed Knetworkmanager, start it again, and.. it worked!
But now, I have to kill it, and start again always, when I reboot my laptop...(HP Compaq 6720s, BCM4312, KDE 4.3.4)
I have an Asus EeePc 1001PX and on resume I have "Network Management disabled", neither wired nor wireless interface can be configured, the NM icon is greyed out. running ifconfig shows eth0 and wlan0 have disappeared completely.
I found 2 options: 1. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/555571 2. Network management disabled after start on 11.2 - openSUSE Forums
but I don't have the /var/lib/NetworkManager folder at all
I just switched to opensuse from fedora. So far, I like it a lot (KDE FTW). However, I am having a couple issues concerning hibernation and restarting.Whenever I merely close my computer but don't shut it off, I am forced to reboot. When I open the computer after closing it, everything stays black and nothing seems to work aside from a restart (no good, I know).When I restart, network management is disabled and thus I am prevented from accessing wireless. The only solution I have found is to hibernate, which for some reason fixes the problem. A restart however does nothing. So I guess I have two questions:1) Why can't I close my computer without turning it off?2) Is there a more permanent solution aside from merely hibernating after a crash that will fix network manager
I am using an Acer Aspire 5536 AMD dual core laptop with a 64bit installation of Susie 11.4. Using 11.2 I had no problems connecting to the wireless router. As soon as 11.4 was installed, clean install, and the laptop rebooted, network manager failed to start, until manually invoked and then enabling networking through the system tray. Even after this it will not connect to a wired or wireless network sometimes for more than 30 minutes.
I have just installed opensuse 11.3. I am absolutely new for Linux and for this forum. I have tried to open Network manager to configure my wlan. But its not starting. How to start network manager and configuring my wlan.
I just changed my power settings so that my laptop would hibernate when I closed the lid... but now KDE Network Manager has decided that it will not allow itself to be enabled. I can get my ethernet connection working through YAST... but I *really* need the wireless to work as well... so can somebody *please* tell me why KNM is being so stupid, and how I can fix it? EDIT: I just realized that I should have put this in the Network subforum...
Just bought new laptop i7 with broadcom wireless, intalled opensuse 11.3 x64. I had major trouble to make it work... Even compiled kernel 2.6.37-rc6, but didnt go.Then I took drivers and firmware from git repositories, compiled, did what it was necessary and I made it work.This morning, (since system was new), I just did zypper upgrade (nothing new installed from default installation, I just added packman to repos).And, now wireless is not working. In network manager, option "enable wireless" is disabled.I went to YaST, put network on ifup, it did scan networks, but cant make it work either. Turned it back to network manager, but same thing.Module brcm80211 is loaded, but I cannot make wireless work.
I setup a server with vmware esxi 4. I installed opensuse 11.2 and I have successfully setup an internet gateway and I manually configured (static) my client IP. My question is, is there any software or commands that I could use to manage the bandwidth usage for each client? eg. only 5Mbps for 192.168.1.5, 10Mbps for 192.168.1.10, etc
I did a fresh install of OpenSuSE 11.3 KDE 64-bit on my new laptop. Worked like a charm. But I brought it with me to work without connecting it to a wi-fi and now the network manager doesn't want to start when I'm back in range of my home connection. Also, whenever I try to launch KNetworkManager, it won't load up a window and I still can't connect. This is even disabling the Ethernet port also.
After a disastrous foray into LDAP I restored NIS on a very simple network run by a very simple operator. Everything now works except for YaST on the NIS master. I can't manage NIS users in YaST any more. The option 'show NIS users' is now absent from the 'filter' button up in YaST "User and Group Management" So, after following the YaST route to LDAP there seems no way back...
These are OpenSUSE 11.3 boxes and the slave NIS server can't [obviously enough] delete expired NIS users on the master, although it sees them fine. Disabling or changing NIS server or client on the Master simply restores the 'wrong' settings - nothing is erased or cleaned. How do I clean up NIS controls so YaST sees it properly? or What do I need to do to restore NIS group & user control to YaST?
I use an internet connection with a proxy. I have set the proxy in Firefox and systemsettings so now I can browse the web and I can ping Google from Console. But when I start Software Management, it says "Cannot access installation media". Whats wrong?
On Linux Mint (Gnome) i used to go to Network drive. that is on the right hand side of Nautilus there is a short cut for Network. in there i could see my network hard drive and other laptops connected to the network, and i could access my files. but on OpenSuse, when i open the network folder, nothing comes up. may be it needs some sort of configuration.
I seem to have somehow messed up my repositories and now NetworkManager isn't working.
I have two errors happening, which I'm sure are related. First of all, when I try to load knetworkmanager, I get the error:
Code: knetworkmanager: error while loading shared libraries: libkminterminals.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Second of all, when I restart my computer, upon loading I get a message from Akondi Server Self-Test saying several databases failed. I've never seen this before, so I think fixing these errors would be best? Some of the errors are MySql failed, akondi not registered at dbus, etc.
Lastly, I don't have a wired connection so currently my machine has no internet. I'm using a second laptop to get necessary files and I transfer them with usb.
i used to start vpn connections with knetworkmanaer in 11.3now i migrated to 11.4 and had to install the networkmanager plasmoid instead. the reason is variosu crashes and that knetworkmanager is unable to start 3g connections. however it was able to start vpn.now i am using the plasmoid and i can get the 3g started but not the vpn. when i click on the connection nothing happens.
I'm configuring a computer for someone and I don't know the wireless network they will be using. (They are not technical.) I've setup networking to use NetworkManager. It works just fine.However, Knetworkmanager won't startup at boot/login. Therefore, the network doesn't startup automatically. I have to click on the icon in the menu to start it.That works well, but it should be configurable to startup automatically.I've searched this forum for answers and don't find any good ones. It seems there isn't an answer or there is a bug in KDE 4.x. (I'm using KDE 4.3.x)
I have just installed squid and sarg, both are working well. I cannot get squid to start when the machine boots. I installed webmin and configured the setup through the webmin interface where I checked the "start at boot option". I think the problem is that my network card responsible for the web connection is wireless so when squid tries to load during boot it is trying before the Wireless card is up and so it fails. I have tried multiple methods of adding a script to the "dispatcher.d" folder in "NetworkManager" to load squid after wlan0 is up but all have failed to bring up the squid proxy without my interaction. I have not found any two sites that describe the syntax for "dispatcher.d" alike so I may have the command wrong but I have no what to do.
I made a brief foray into IceWM g which I used tradition ifup" instead of KNetworkManager. I switched back to KDE and even though I have re-enabled "user controlled with network manager" KNetworkManager still doesn't run at KDE login. The connection's fine and I can start it up myself and it works.What is the best way to set it back to run at login so I'm automatically connected to the network?
I am running 11.3 on a desktop and knetworkmanager used to startup upon login.However recently, knetworkmanager do NOT startup upon login. have to manually start the application from the menu.YaST / Network Devices / Network Settings / Global Options Tab is all the while set to "User Controlled With NetworkManager"I've even updated to KDE4.5 but the problem still persists.Any idea what can be done to get knetworkmanager to startup upon login?
Thinkpad Edge, Intel Version, OS 11.3, KDE 4.5.2after my notebook shut down (due to a low battery) when I was just using Knetworkmanager to add a new W-LAN connection, I can't start Knetworkmanager anymore. Terminal output is:
Code: ~> knetworkmanager Connecting to deprecated signal
I can't start NFS Server with GSS option.I've added [URL] (example) principal via kadmin with -randkey option as mentioned at "6.4.8. Creating Kerberos Service Principals".After executing rcnfsserver start, /var/log/messages shows:"do you have a keytab entry for nfs/<your.host>@<YOUR.REALM> in /etc/krb5.keytab?"
Installed opensuse 11.4 and wireless network started automatically. Then I changed the name of the computer in YAST, and restarted. Now I cannot get NM to start automatically at boot. The red X shows up on the panel app Network Management and settings buttons do not activate the wireless device. I have to start NetworkManager from the command line. After about 30 seconds the wireless hardware symbol turns on and then I can connect to the network.

I get "unable to open file: /etc/samba/dhcp.conf" messages in /var/log/samba/log.* worked perfectly fine in 11.3. permissions are 755 on /etc/samba and all files are 644 or 600 in the directory. Starting manually gives same result. My 11.2 and 11.3 machines continue to work. this is a weird one and I don't see any posts relating to this. For other uses, the machine seems ok.
