Network Manager Issues


I'm running LFS 11.0. Network manager and applet successfully installed. Wireless connection works ok, but the connection has to be restarted manually after every disconnect. In addition, the last connection info shows 'never', and the applet icon spins continually.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Hello, wrinklytech & welcome to LQ.

You're very short on information for us to do anything with. A circle continually turning indicates a process hasn't finished; so if it's trying to connect,that's a bad sign.

If you have networkmanager in some init script, there's a console tool called 'nmtui' which you could try.

Thanks for your interest business_kid. I seem to have sorted this out, I'd originally set up wireless networking manually, thinking I'd need only to connect to the one router at home. I installed Network Manager later when I took the laptop away with me. I realised there was some sort of conflict between Network Manager and the original set up, so I deleted the ifconfig file, which gave me local networking only, but nothing else despite entering valid DNS addresses in the Network Manager settings for the wireless device. I found some info online, suggesting the nameservers still needed to be entered in resolv.conf, and this finally did the trick.
