Isn't 14.1 RC1 different than "current" at this point?

Check if is installed in /usr/lib64.

If it is, then you may need to recreate a symlink to in the same directory.

Can't remember which package it came with.

FWIW, I did a clean install of AlienBob's 14.1 RC1 ISO and NetworkManager works fine here. I know that your supposed to be able to upgrade via Slackpkg or some such, but I prefer the old reliable dust-and-install method. Actually, this was about the fastest I've ever had a new version of Slackware up and running.
