LFS 8.2 network-manager-applet install fails


Hi All,
Been messing with lfs 8.2systemd again trying to get a network connection. When installing network-manager-applet everything goes ok till I try to install.
here are the last few lines
FAILED: meson-install
/usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/meson --internal install /sources/network-manager-applet-1.8.10/build/meson-private/install.dat
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.
I reinstalled meson already. I did notice ninja said something rc2 missing it will be built with out it.
A compatible version of re2c (>= 0.11.3)
Thanks for any ideas and help.

Was ever able to connect etho because my firmware is history I guess.No downloades ever worked.
Thanks again

nm-manager-applet is for a near complete Gnome 3 build. Highly doubt you are there. What nic make/model is giving you trouble in LFS?

Hey Arch-ling
rtl 8188ee

I had success building and running LFS 8.1 systemd but have had a difficult time (8.2 systemd) getting either ethernet or wifi working. The e1000e firmware gives me trouble
installing so I tried getting NetworkManager to work . Still nothing. I've tried every setting I could and nothing.
Thanks fer the interest

I've never had an issue getting any wired nic to work on lfs. Try a wired nic first. Login as root and run lspci -v and see what driver it's showing and report back here if you want to try that.

Lspci-v shows e1000e and rtl 8188ee Strange. Looks like I did get the e1000e firmware to install, but
when i ping 8.8.8.8. I get unkown host.

I put my router dns and then 8.8.8.8 in /etc/resolv.conf Make sure systemctl status systemd-networkd and resolvd are up and running if not start them. Most setups need this too
Code:
 ln -sfv /run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

Thanks for your time. I am totally lost now. I need to know how to stop and start systemd-networkd . Its says I have no resolv.conf file.
Been fooling with this for a few days now and will have to give it up for awhile. Hard to get all this built and can't get it to work.
Lots of hours
Regards

To stop systemd-netaoked
systemctl stop systemd-networkd
systemctl start systemd-networkd

To start Network manager
systemctl start NetwokManager

You have to stop systemd-networkd to run NetworkManager
