KDE Network Management problems


Even with the recent KDE 4.11.4 on Slack 14.1, I have not been able to get KDE's Network Management working. It's completely blank and says it's disabled.

Did you make the /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager script executable?

The wireless card works. I've been using wpa_supplicant and wpa_gui, but it doesn't work as well as I'd like. I always have to restart /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.

No, it's not. But, when I started it, NetworkManager seemed to conflict with my /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf settings, and it disconnected my ethernet connection.

Well yes, they conflict of course. You should use one or the other.
If you want to use NetworkManager, then clean out the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf file (an empty one can be downloaded here if you do not know how to clean that file) and make /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager executable. Then your KDE applet will work.

I have my rc.inet1.conf pretty customized for eth0 (custom IP, IPv6 tunnel, etc.) and blank for wlan0, so I would like to use NetworkManager for wlan0. Is that possible?
thanks

I've tried the same with no luck. This is why I went back to "rc.inet1.conf".

I think that you need to use one or the other.

Why exactly do they conflict?

It's like having two light switches control the lights in a room. Only one switch at a time can turn the light on. I'm not sure if that helps or is accurate, but it makes sense in my head.

This thread has an example. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5/#post5064134

Perhaps put the customisations for eth0 in a script in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d and use NetworkManager for all.
