I'm wondering why the NetworkManager log file would show an entry whenever an external usb drive is plugged in. It's obviously HAL related but looking at the various files of hal, udev, syslog shows nothing relevant.
Here's the entry just after the usual info about the network card:
May 28 08:35:16 doomed NetworkManager: <info> Activation (eth0) Stage 5 of 5 (IP Configure Commit) scheduled...
May 28 08:35:16 doomed NetworkManager: <info> Activation (eth0) Stage 4 of 5 (IP Configure Get) complete.
May 28 08:35:16 doomed NetworkManager: <info> Activation (eth0) Stage 5 of 5 (IP Configure Commit) started...
This is an opensuse 10.3 with final updates system.
Any search here about the log shows nothing but actual network problems.
I remember that I did configure my desktop PC for wired and wireless connections since openSUSE 11.2, 11.3 and 11.4. Currently I have openSUSE11.4 x86_64 KDE. Today I happen to notice that the icon for NetworkManager in the taskbar has been replaced with a red X. I discovered that Network Manager only shows VPN tab, whereas Wired and Wireless tabs are greyed out. The strange thing is I still have Internet connection with the CAT5 cable being plugged in. I can still configure wired and wireless connections via YAST but I cannot fix Network Manager settings.
I managed to kill KNetworkManager today and I'm not sure what I did. This is a netbook running openSUSE 11.4 with all updates applied and KDE 3.5 (from the openSUSE repository). Normally, I use knetworkmanager to connect to the Internet. Everything was working fine this morning and today I decided to apply whole disk encryption (using cryptsetup and luks) to it.
So, I backed up the files, encrypted the partitions, made some adjustments to /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/menu.lst, and copied the files back. Everything is working fine, except for knetworkmanager. When it goes to connect, it starts off with the "gray Earth" (to represent no connection) and then it switches to the "connecting" icon for a fraction of a second, and then it's back to the "gray Earth". Looking at the output of iwconfig, it hasn't connected to the router at all (the essid is blank).
The connection works fine using ifup. I tried using cnetworkmanager (the console version) and it spits out errors like this:
I am running an Opensuse 11.2 system as a backup file server. Several external hard drives are attached via USB and mounted during boot via the fstab file. Recently, I noticed the df command showed the root partition being >65% full, while the du command showed the same drive was only about 20% full. After much investigation, I discovered that some large directories had been created under the /media folder on the root partition that were hidden when the external drives were mounted as directories with the same names under /media. I could only see this when I rebooted with a live CD and mounted the suspect partition without the external drives mounted. Is there a way to examine whether a mounted partition has existing files "hidden" when a separate file system is mounted "on top of it"?
The card is recognized by System--admin--network as the correct card (BCM43XG) and assigned eth1. However, NetworkManager shows no wireless network. I have a great signal on the same machine if I boot into a Windows partition.
I have an SiI hardware SATA RAID card, with two 500GB disks in mirrored RAID configuration. When I first plugged them in and set it up, things seemed to work ok, but on boot the raid controller told me that the RAID needed rebuilding, and it would happen automatically after POST. So I didn't worry about it, and the drive mounted fine, and it's been that way for years. I just went in and manually on-line rebuilt the RAID in the controller's BIOS, and now when I boot into Ubuntu, both disks show up in fdisk, but neither show up in /dev/disk/by-uuid. Am I missing something?
I'm running Squeeze and I'm looking 3 days now for a solution in some weird problem. The NetworkManager Applet shows that there isn't connection although I am connected. The icon has this small "x" and when mouseover it says "No network conncection". Moreover when left clicking it, it says
"Wired Network Device not managed"
While I was looking for the solution a came across this post by an Ubuntu developer who says:network-manager-applet displays the connectivity state of network-manager's managed interfaces not every interface. So the title "network manager says disconnected but is connected and working" is actually misleading. The interface is connected and working but not from network-manager's point of view since it is not managing the interface. Additionally, in Lucid now network-manager applet displays nothing now for non-managed interfaces so is less misleading. You can check to see whether or not an interface is managed by network-manager by using the command line too nm-tool. You'll see "State: unmanaged" for unmanaged interfaces.
I'm encountering a strange problem. I need to open and forward all UDP and TCP ports related to VoIPtelephony (5000:32000) in the Suse 11.1 server that's acting as router/firewall in our setup. The ports must redirect to a Asterisk server in the local network. (This server has the IP adress 192.168.0.3)I've opened ports in Yast (Firewall>Ports>Advanced) and putted in some masquerading rulesirewall>Masquerading):0/0,192.168.0.3,tcp,5000:31000,5000:310000/0,192.168.0.3,udp,5000:31000,5000:31000when I do a nmap localhost I get:Starting Nmap 4.75 at 2010-01-08 16:52 CETInteresting ports on localhost (127.0.0.1):

Before doing a clonezilla project I opened Disk utility shows the first partition labeled as sdb2, then second partition as sdb1is this normal? I will add that this is a windows drive, but I wanted to back it up before installing debian to it. How will the disk partition labeling affect partition naming in debian?
I am looking for such a tool, very much like the one that is on Windows 7, where you can basically with one glance see how much of a volume is occupied (graphical bar) and that for all mounted volumes. I have been looking for this, but so far I have not found it.Also, important: that it is auto updated. So that it is not like a report that was generated and then does not change anymore, but a live thing
I had installed Ubuntu 10.04 on dual boot mode with Windows 7, I had to migrate from windows 7 to XP & again to windows 7. Each time after installation I updated grub. Last time while updating Grub PC went Down due to power failure. I update grub after the supply was resumed and it was successful.
On login I am facing a weird problem, My windows Drive are not appearing in Ubuntu. To access the drives I have to Plug a Pen Drive and access them first from an Application otherwise the don't even appear in Places drop-down list. If I don't plug Pen Drive they don't appear in Applications.
The other problem is that Disk utility shows space unallocated, allocated & Free above the physical capacity of Hard disk. My Hard disk is of 160 GB, Disk utility Shows Unallocated Space 18446744 TB. The Default Partitions made by me are 26GB, 14GB & others of 40 GB each.
I recently installed openSUSE 11.2 x86_64 on a Dell Studio 17. The only way I can get a wired internet connection is through NetworkManager. I want to be able to make some setting changes to it but there is no NetworkManager icon on the toolbar!
trying to update my gnome network manager to version 0.8 as described here:NetworkManager - Linux Networking made EasyWhen in opensuse software manager only version 0.7.1 is listed. When is version 0.8 going to be there?I found 0.8 here[URL]But it says it's for GNOME:Factory/openSUSE_Factory and I have opensuse 11.2.
I did an upgrade from 11.2 to 11.3 at my Dell D820 laptop. Everything is working fine except that with Networkmanager it no longer sets the default gateway received by DHCP. I do receive an IP-adress (wired/wireless, does not make a difference) but no gateway. I have tested with several networks and this problem stays...
Of course I can do it manual (adding an default gw), but facing different wired/wireless networks its very unhandy.
Under Networkmanager -> Manage Connection You can edit a connection. If you do that, under tab 'IP-address' -> Configure: Automatic (DHCP) . Below you can select option 'routes'. In this field nothing is selected (I think that is correct). It must be something simple/stupid but what?
I am experiencing troubles when connecting to my new private network under Linux (works fine with Windows). I cannot get an ip address and the logs tell me a bit more, but I would like to know how to proceed to resolve this issue. My network adapter is an Intel Wifi Link 5100 using the iwlagn driver. Connecting to other WEP APs usually works flawless, it's the first time my system won't connect at all to this particular WEP encrypted access point.
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.
There is that twisted "N" symbol: clicking on it gives no response (but the mouse cursor is changed when over the menu bar).
Sometimes (not always(!), no pattern found when) the little cell phone symbol in the tray is there although hidden in a sub menu. There I can activate networkmanager but I then get a popup saying that network is already running do I want to start it by hand or automatically? Nothing happens clicking on either choice.
Starting from command line has no visible effect and no errors printed.
How should the connection be established? Where can I enter my parameters? (This is a 3G mobile connection).
After updating from 11.3 to 11.4 the networkmanager stopped working for me. When I hover over the KDE NetworkManager icon it says Error: Invalid state. If I click it, it says Network Management disabled and checkboxes (Enable networking and enable wireless - both checked). I already tried removing /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state and restarting the network management (/etc/init.d/network restart). Also reinstalling the NetworkManager package.
I find that the new KDE4 notification icon is not very easy to see.The "progress" indication is a microscopic vertical progress bar, that I find very difficult to interpret.OK, it is a minor annoyance, but I do find that I regularly try to use the network on my laptop before the connection has been established.It is also a regression over the icons in 11.1 or before, which were very clear.If people agree with me on this point, I will post a bug, with the aim of getting a clearer icon.
I installed OpenSuse 11.2 LiveCD. I'm currently running patch download and installation so maybe this will fix my problem. When I use NetworkManager, WPA or WPA2 are not an option. I'm give four encryption methods (WEP 40, WEP 128, LEAP and Dynamic 801.x) Is this a problem with my Thinkpad T23's 802.11b wireless card? Do I need to install a patch?
I have a successfully connected VPN connection. When hovering on the networkmanager applet it show beside the wireless connection also the connected VPN. The icon also changed from staircase-bar to staircase-bar with forelock. Oh yeah I'm using GNOME desktop.However when right-clicking on it and choose Connection Information I can only found tab for the wireless connection. How can I have the information tab also for the VPN connection, showing like IP address and gateway used?
I just tested Networkmanager on OpenSuSE 11.2. I tried with my wired connection and it works.
I thought I test to connect with network sharing with my Android phone. The Android phone connects according to Networkmanager, but I'm not sure if it actually works as the wired connection is still active.
I tried to figure out how to disable the wired connection, but eventually gave up and just pulled the wired network plug.
But surely, there must be a way to disable connections from Networkmanager?
On fresh install of 11.4 everything worked fine, but after some updates networkmanager stopped working properly on my netbook (intel atom n270 based).When I log in, network manager shows that networking is disabled and I can't connect. Checking/unchecking the checkbox does nothing. All settings in Yast are OK.To make it work, run "/etc/init.d/network restart" and then plug in the wire OR (in case of wireless connection) I restart network from console, unchecck and check the checkbox in networkmanager and only then it starts to work as it should.
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'm using OpenSuse 11.1 (but it applies also to 11.0) on a Dell XPS, NetworkManager and scpm to manage profiles. I configured wireless network without problems and all runs perfectly. The annoying problem is that the wireless connection doesn't start at boot. Also by clicking on the NetworkManager applet networks are not displayed
But, as soon as I launch network configuration from Yast without do anything other, magically the wireless network is recognized and the PC connects to it.
It seems that the network configuration from Yast activates NetworkManager to connect or it activates the interface or the hardware.
I'm finding the NetworkManager applet very confusing.When I start up at a new location I can use the "Connect to Other Network..." menu item to bring up the list of available networks, and I'd expect that by selecting one of these and clicking "Connect", then configuring and clicking OK, I'd get a connection. Instead the dialog just goes away and nothing else happens. Is something broken with NetworkManager, or am I misunderstanding how this is supposed to work?
By switching back and forth between NetworkManager and ifup I'm eventually able to establish a connection to a new access point, but it's been a painful process.I've also encountered a problem reported by others, where when my system fails to suspend/resume properly the /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state has NetworkingEnabled=false and I need to manually edit this before restarting networking... but that's a separate issue, and I can work around it with the manual edit (or just add a startup script to do this automatically).
My friend and I spent two weeks trying to find out why my openSUSE laptop wouldn't connect to his router using WEP. We finally figured out that the KDE networkmanager was not translating the passphrase into the hexidecimal number (default key #1). Once we entered the hexidecimal number, it connected with no problems. He uses Ubuntu on his test laptop (Windows guy). Ubuntu, and kubuntu via live CD, both connected only using the passphrase. I didn't have an openSUSE Gnome live CD to test weather this is KDE specific or not.
