Angry Networking Disabled in openSUSE


I am using openSUSE since last 4 years ,which is installed on my External Transcend 320 Gig External Hard-disk. Now I don't know why but my network is not working, i.e. when I click on "Network Manager", it reads, "Network Manager disabled". So is there any way to overcome from this problem ? I also tried to restart the network service but , it did not worked. :-(

please point me out to some specific solution.

Does your syslog or dmesg show any messages after booting or when you try to restart network(-related) services? Did you recently upgrade kernel, kernel modules or network(-related) software? Do you use wired or wireless?

no i have not upgraded any modules or the Linux kernel ,neither any error messages are shown by my computer, except the one, that reads "error upgrading YasT wish-list, do you want to update it manually ?'
And I am using wired Internet connection.

please ask for if any system-log if you find it useful.

Let's start with some basic nfo like 'cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth* /etc/dhclient*.conf /etc/resolv.conf /etc/nsswitch.conf; ifconfig -a; route -n;' (and lspci or hwinfo --network_ctrl or lshw -c network) and cat whatever in /etc/syconfig/hardware/ relates to your network card if anything?

Sounds too simple but if you start yast and look in network devices is the Network Manager enabled, or is it set to 'Traditional with ifup'?
