Fedora :: Knetwork Manager With The Update - Stable And Robust Enough For Regular Use?

Nov 18, 2009

I'm running Fedora 11, and just did an update of the system. It looks like there was an update to the package that takes care of knetwork manager. In the past, I have played around with it, but it hasn't met my needs, so I went back to nm-applet, which works fine.

I'm curious about the update, and would like to see if it works. However, knetwork manager won't start as there is another network manager already running (there is a message about this everytime I log in). I can easily kill nm-applet, but logging out and back in causes it to reload, and I still get the message from knetwork manager. So here are my questions:

1) With the update, is knetwork manager stable and robust enough for regular use (the docs for F11 said it wasn't upon F11 release, so included gnome's network manager as the default network manager)?
2) How do I get knetwork manager to work (I presume this means I turn off Gnome's network management and switch to knetwork management)?

Ubuntu :: Wireless Stopped Connecting - Applying Regular Updates Via Update Manager

May 9, 2011

My self-built PC had a BT wireless adaptor in it which worked, albeit after a bit of a faff, with Ubuntu 10.10 in connecting to my BT HomeHub2.

When I came to use it last week it would not connect. I'd not changed any hardware but I had been applying regular updates via Update Manager.

Bearing in mind the "faff" factor, I decided to try a different (Edimax) wireless card but got the same result. Upgrading to 11.04 has made no difference either.

It does *try* to connect but fails, so I think the card is installed correctly. I've also tried a full reset on the HomeHub and the setup works fine with W7.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Knetwork Manager Launched Every KDE Boot?

Nov 10, 2010

I've just setup my mother's desktop PC (HP P6510F) which has a wired connection to the internet, with 64-bit openSUSE-11.3 KDE-4.4.4 desktop. Her PC also has a wireless device, so I decided to set that up. I have it working with the internet (using knetworkmanager), but I have to launch knetworkmanager from a terminal each boot, as it is not launched every boot by default.

What is the 'proper' way to have knetworkmanager launched every boot in KDE4 ? (I can hack at this, but if there is a preferred/recommended method, I would rather use that). I suspect no more detail is needed, but in case one is curious: Her wireless is:

OpenSUSE :: Knetwork Manager - Does Runlevel 3 Allow Wireless Connections To Work

Jun 20, 2011

I understand that the K (KDE) network manager is a KDE app but does it actually function in runlevel 3? By that I mean does it allow wireless connections to work? I've been trying to do this but can't. I have a need to while in KDE to sometime init 3 and while in runlevel 3 I need my wireless to work. I havent figured out if Knetwork manager still functions outside of KDE or if I need to just use ifup traditional.

I did search the forum for threads related to knetwork manager and did not see anything related to this so I hope someone can assist me. Also if I do need to use ifup traditional method, is there anything specail I need to do so that it works without issues such as, uninstall knetwork manager or something else? I ask this because my previous attempts at using ifup (by switching to it from YAST) end up making my wireless not work. I can scan and find my network but after entering my creds it doesnt do anything. I managed to get it to work once somehow but after a shutdown and reboot it no longer worked. Just incase you need to know, I'm running Suse11.4 KDE 4.6, my wireless module I believe is a iwlagn or something like that. My laptop which Suse is running on is a Toshiba A665-S6086 core i3, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD.

OpenSUSE Network :: Knetwork Manager Fails After Virtual Box Install

Aug 15, 2010

I have installed Vbox on 2 systems running Opensuse 11.3 and both have experienced knetworkmanager failure. Knetworkmanager failed after a failed wake up from sleep mod, which also had been working perfectly until this failure. I am wondering if the vbox kernel modules could be causing this isssue. To temporarily fix the problem I am running my network connections through yast networks setting . (which uses the traditional ifup method and everything is working)

OpenSUSE Network :: Knetwork Manager: Enable/disable Wireless To Connect

Jan 28, 2010

I have a minor problem with Knetwork-manager. When I boot up, it won't connect to my wireless router automatically. I have to right-click the taskbar icon, disable wireless, then enable wireless, then it connects fine.It remembers the password fine and once it's connected, it's flawless. It's just the minor issue of having to effectively 'switch the internet on' rather than it just being connected when I turn on my laptop.

I'm using Opensuse 11.2, KDE 4.3.1 (didn't have this issue with 11.1). I've tried the latest Kubuntu (9.10) and knetwork-manager worked flawlessly but I didn't like the rest of the OS so I came back to Opensuse If I restart, suspend or hibernate it usually connects okay, it just seems to be when I boot from 'cold'.

I've tried nm-applet but same problem. I also tried wicd but it didn't really like my system. I've changed my wireless router recently as well with no change, so I don't think it's that. As I say it's a minor problem, it's not really an issue for me to turn it on each time but it would be nice to clear it up. I've googled and searched since 11.2 was released but haven't found any answers and my linux skills are still a bit lacking.

OpenSUSE Network :: Knetwork Manager No WLAN - Ifup Working Fine

Mar 29, 2010

I have searched around a bit for a knetwork manager issue I am having on my opensuse 11.2 32 bit install. My wireless card is an 04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) I am currently using the Broadcom wl driver

I am on the Internet with this machine as I am typing using the older "ifup" method. I am having great difficulty connecting to the Internet when I use knetwork manger though. The strange part is when I am connected to my router with knetwork manager, I can log into my Router, but I can not get to any web-page/ping any outside address.

so far the best (I was able to locate) advice I was able to get is located in this post. < Broadcom wireless, partchy internet - openSUSE Forums > following a posted how to to disable IPV6 (I suspect this may be the issue??), I was unable to locate modprobe.conf, or modprobe.conf.local, even after I updated via updatdb. I gave a shot at entering in "disable_ipv6=1" into "menu.lst". However, this did not solve my issue with knetwork manager. If my network information is needed when I am "connected" utilizing knetwork manager

OpenSUSE Network :: KNetwork Manager And Ethernet Port Disabled - Can't Connect

Oct 28, 2010

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.

Fedora :: Making An Rsync Backup More Robust?

Aug 24, 2009

I'm syncing a server over the internet with rsync, but it only works for a few hours before the backup fails with a "No route to host". I can restart the job and it'll will pick up where it left off, but is there an automated way to do this, or protect against a connection failure? I have about 170GB to copy over initially, but I can only get through about 4-5GB before the connection drops--manually restarting the sync everytime it drops will make the initial backup take days...

OpenSUSE Network :: Masquerad Internet Using Knetwork Manager - Share The Internet Connection To A Desktop

Jul 5, 2011

OpenSuse 11.4 Asus Netbook 1000H Following other members in the forums I have installed Opensuse 11.4 on the Netbook. In the early days Ubuntu Netbook Remix worked well for me. But this has been discarded, and the "one size fits all" Ubuntu had become slow and cumbersome. So..... onto my post. Opensuse is working well. The install went beautifully.

It detected the Wireless Internet and I am able to get on line. I also need to share the Internet connection to a desktop. This is done via a small network switch. Thus far I cannot do this. I tried to use ifup to configure a static ip but this busted my Wireless configuration. I went back to knetwork manager. Then I tried to set up the wired network using knetwork manager and under IPV4 "share" the connection. But this blanks out any possiblity of a static address and substitutes dhcp. My desktop cannot ping the this dhcp address. Ubuntu had this thing called Firestarter? - from memory. This configured the system to sharing the network.

Debian :: New Stable Update - Command Aptitude Not Found

Feb 7, 2011

Well it didn't go smoothly for me. After downloading over 1,6Gb (!) of that new Debian version and restarting I was 'greeted' by a dreaded CLI instead of gnome. To make matters worse I got "command aptitude not found".
'apt-get' still worked.
Anyway, if you're gonna update check dependencies first. It seems I lost gnome due to gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs. So first uninstall that package if you got it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Regular Update Now Can't Boot From HD Or CD?

Oct 7, 2010

I updated my Ubuntu 10.04 on Dell 1330 and on the next boot it failed. I get a series of messages, the main point seems to be that it can't find the files it needs to mount.I tried booting from the live cd I used to install 10.04, but it can't boot either due to wrong user id error and maybe trying to boot from wrong kernel?At this point I am willing to just wipe the hard drive and do a fresh install but how to do that if I can't run the install cd?Or is there a way from initramfs to solve this?I tried mount /dev/sda1/mnt but it says cannot read /etc/fstab no such file.libdevmapper

Ubuntu Installation :: Regular Update On 9.10 Breaks USB Printer?

Feb 10, 2010

I did an update during a time when power was cycling due do a nasty snow storm, but I'm pretty sure the update was completed successfully before I lost power. What did happen though is that my BIOS setup was reset.

Now if my HP Laserjet 1020 is plugged into USB during boot all other USB devices freeze for a while. So I played with my BIOS setting for USB:

- Enabled V1.1 and V2.0
- Disabled System USB Shadowing

So now my bootup doesn't hang. But now when I actually go into Karmic I still can't print.

dmesg shows the following:

[ 205.940008] usb 1-10: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9
[ 219.510026] hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 10
[ 223.430008] usb 1-10: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 10
