OpenSUSE Wireless :: Knetworkmanager Crashes After Bad Shutdown?
Sep 11, 2011
I accidentally powered down in the middle of a session by removing the wrong battery from my laptop (a Motion Computing tablet), and ever since that happened knetworkmanager crashes with a segmentation fault on startup. I have uninstalled it and then reinstalled it from an openSuse 11.4 DVD I made a few months ago, but it still crashes on startup. Ifup says it connects to the wifi (Wayport Access @ McDonalds) I have available, but browsers don't reach the internet while Ifup is connected, so I can't sign on and get access to anything more recent. Is there some file I ought to delete,or some other software I ought to delete and reinstall?
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
on kde4 with knetworkmanager I cannot get past the wep security key on my home router. Every other wlan works, ethernet works, settings are definitely correct because it works with windows, other computers.And on the same computer even with gnome networkmanager! Also it used to work fine earlier. Behavior the same with different users including root, regardless of using kwallet or not. Networkamanager tries to connect and after one or two minutes throws the setting window back at me. I uninstalled and re-installed and deleted all related files I could think of. I even tried a complete fresh installation of opensuse only keeping the /home partition, so the problem must be lying there I guess. But then why all users?
PS opensuse 11.2 kde networkmanager 0.9.svn1043876-1.1.1
Since my update to OpenSuse 11.2 knetworkmanager refuses to connect to WEP enabled networks (worked fine with knetworkmanager 11.1). I am sure that I use the correct password and I tried on 3 different networks. The manager is connecting to open networks and WAP protected networks without problems. I saw on other forums that there were similar problems with previous versions of networkmanager. But I could not find a solution for my problem.
I have two usb wlan cards. In 11.2 whenever i start connection with the second one (wlan1) via knetworkmanager, the latter also starts a connection using the first one , leading to wlan problems,
In 11.1 i had no such problems because i could select the one to be used in knetworkmanager, and only that one was used by knetworkmanager.my current solution is to
su ifdown wlan0 logout
this shuts down the first card but i have to do this manually after every restart. one thing: don't come with "deactivate in bios" - i knoe this but playing around in bios everytime i switch between windows and linux is no option. So how can i prohibit permanently that knetworkmanager uses the first one (wlan0)? putting in some place of suseconfigs a rmmod <driver>? where? /etc/sysconfig ??
Even though I am not new to Suse, I am still very inexperienced, especially when it comes to wireless. I am running Suse Linux 11.3 and I am having problems connecting to my wireless. My network controller is a RaLink RT2500 802.11g Cardbus/mini-PCI (rev 01). I am recieving a signal from my wireless router, however when I try to connect to my ESSID via KnetworkManager It asks for a WEP key. After entering the key, Knetnetwork manager will try to connect for a minute or so and then it will ask for my WEP key again. It keeps repeating this cycle without ceasing. How to configure the WEP so that Knetwork manager will connect or a way around WEP.
I have built 11.2 on several laptops and knetwork manager startup for wireless is not consistent. I can't figure it out. Sometimes the options "Create Network Connection" and "enable wireless" are greyed out. Other times they are fine. What is the secret to getting the options to appear in my window tray all the time? I always select knetwork manager as the default when I do a clean build.
No improvement since I first reported this problem, I am hoping somebody can now advise. Using openSUSE11.3 Linux 18.104.22.168-0.5-default i686 with kde 4.4.4 release 3.Problem is the wait of sometimes over 2 minutes before the wifi connection is available.Two questions:- 1. Why does it take so long? Longer by far than it to be with previous openSUSE releases. Much longer than with that other OS!!!2. How do I remove the wallet process. Not needed in present environment so I would like direct connection without having to open wallet. I didn't set this up, it just happened after I had upgraded to 11.3 and I need to know how to disable it to save time.
I have an open WEP wireless internet connection with a security key. KNetworkManager can never obtain an IP address from my wireless router, but I know that the router works because Windows can connect correctly and Ubuntu's NetworkManager can connection correctly. Does anyone know what is happening? KNetworkManager just asks for my security again and again and again after it fails to connect.
I want to connect my OpenSuse 11.3 Distribution with the Internet via WLAN. But i can't open the KNetworkManager. It doesnt respond to my clicks. If I click on the KNetworkManager "Button" it doesen't react.
I have two laptops here, a Lenovo T510 and a Lenovo Ideapdad S12, both running Fedora 13 with KDE4. On the T510 wireless worked out of the box and is enabled when I boot it, on the S12 it's not. I have the wl driver installed but every time I boot the laptop wireless is disabled in knetworkmanager. I have to manually enabled it, then wait a few seconds until it establishes a connection to my already configured wireless networks.
This problem started a few days ago. Whenever I attempt to connect to a wireless connection via network manager, my computer completely crashes, going to a black screen with no input from keyboard or mouse. It forces me to reboot using the power switch. Everything works fine when I connect to an ethernet cable, so I am sure it's a problem with my wireless driver.
I already tried (successfully) reinstalling the ath9k driver via compat wireless as was the advice from other forums, but this had no effect. I'm currently running opensuse 11.4, and haven't had this problem until a few days ago
This problem seems a bit ridiculous for a task as simple as connecting to a wireless network, so I'm convinced that either there is some sort of relatively simple way of fixing it, or windows really is the only decent operating system out there..
My system sometimes crashes on startup/shutdown. No idea what causes it This is my info:Kernel: Linux Mewtwo 2.6.32-23-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 11 07:54:58 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/LinuxUbuntu version: Ubuntu 11.04 (Note: This also happened BEFORE upgrading to 11.04)All the info i could get is in those pics (This happened on boot but I also have crashes on shutdown):[URL]I couldn't find those logs anywhere else in /var/log so I guess it happens before the log files are opened
i just installed a new wireless device from encore electronics(802.11g Wireless PCI Adapter ENLWI-G2) but it deadlocks openSUSE 11.2 when i start the networking module in YaST. It also deadlocks(Freezes up) when i tried reinstalling suse. can someone help me, has anyone got this device to work? I also tried Fedora 12... it manages to see my wlan and posts the mac address of the card.. but it also locks up while trying to use it or configure it
On my Lenovo T410 (openSUSE 11.4 KDE - 64bit) I have mobile broadband. Gobi-loader is installed and working properly. However when I try to setup mobile broadband connection the KDE Control Module crashes. Tried many times also after reboots, though KDE Control Module keeps crashing.
I've been running Debian Squeeze for the past couple of months. I decided to use a ReiserFS (not sure if it's relevant) and had a few problems where I had to hold the power button to shut down the computer. After that the system was not the same and froze from time to time (long periods of freezing) forcing me to hold the power button to shut down the computer, again.
Now, after /dev, /sbin...etc... not being found root not exiting, I have decided to do a new install, however, after several attempts at setting up new partition tables, deleting data on the HD and re-installing, I have failed. Maybe someone can give me some input... here are is my /var/log/syslog from when I ran the Debian install disk: pastebin - syslog - post number 1941832 (I think the end is most relevant).
In the mean time I am going to delete data on the current partitions (if I can) and try to re-install.
I did a live upgrade from 11.3 KDE and observe a following issue.When I press the shutdown button on the laptop it initiates the shutdown and shuts down fine but after a significant delay of time (something like 30 seconds). When I click the shutdown button in KDE it initiates the shutdown instantly. This was not the case in 11.3 where the shutdown worked the same regardless of the method that triggered it
..i'm running 11.2, kde 4.3.i updated my laptop yesterday, and now i'm unable to connect to the internet wirelessly.the network ger icon that was once in my system tray is no longer there, and i have been unable to add it back.more importantly, when i try to run network manager i get the following:KNetworkManagertart because the installation is misconfigured. System DBUS policy does not allow it to provide user settings; contact your system administrator or distribution. KNetworkManager will not start automatically in the future."
i'm completely lost, especially because network manager was working fine yesterday, and all day today until a few hours ago. i made no manual configuration changes, so i have not clue what the thing is talking about...i'm now stuck in a corner of my house
Since 11.2, I am using Knetworkmanager for getting connected to the internet.But is getting disconnected on its own every now and then. I used Kinternet when I was on 11.1 and it worked fine, Infact I would prefer kinternet over knetworkmanager anyday. But in suse 11.2, having both KDE3 and KDE4 libraries does make system work unexpectdly. I tried installing Kinternet once but after that kontact kept crashing (because of clashes between kdelibs3 and kdelibs4).Can anyone help me finding out the problem in knetworkmanger.. here is entry in /var/log/NetworkManager when I got disconnected..

I am trying to set up sound notifications for my wireless internet because my router is old and glitchy (plus it would be pretty cool to hear Homer Simpson get exited about me connecting to the internet). The only notification that does not work is the sound option. I can point the network manager to the .wav file but it will not play, even when I press the little play/test button.
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 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?
The kNetworkManager works well on the laptop both on user account and root account. It connects to my mobile broadband fine.
The problem appeared on my PC. When I log into root account - everything seems to be fine, It connects through knetworkmanager - The cellular connection gets activated, I see X and a heart near "Activated". root account reads my DNS'es from resolv.conf
When I only log into the user account (not as root), the knetworkmanager connects - but as I've checked - it seems that it doesn't use the DNS adresses I've entered in resolv.conf (netconfig_dns_policy is set to "") so I can manually add openDNS to the resolv.conf). It just connects -
I did CHMOD the files resolv.conf and config in sysconfig/network - no luck.
The only way to bypass this is logging to root first - connect there, then switch to user while staying connected... but I think it's an annoying solution.
logs contain this when connecting from user account:

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?
