Persistent problem with network manager applet


I had problems with My Raspberry Pi 4 to connect to my personnal WiFi with the 32 bits version since many weeks.

Today I have decided to switch to the current 64 bits version of Slackware ARM

Everything worked fine and I have a fresh installation where all the applications are working fine and a bit faster than in 32 bits.

But .... I always can connect to my WiFi network

When I ask the nm applet to connect the WiFi Network :

- it asks me for the WPA2 password

I give it to it

- it stays 30 seconds saying " Configuration of the interface" with a rotative signal
then it asks me again the WPA2 password

and this story is repeating 2 , 3 ou 4 times before I stop and it says
" No password has been given"

I have tried to store the password in the settings of KDE but it does not work no more

I have tried a different WiFi network and it does not work with the same messages.

I am disappointed

I normally use wired ethernet but I became curious after the reading the opening post. I use wifi on an Rpi4 occasionally, but hadn't for a couple of months, so I gave it a whack and now I get the same results as Desiderius reports.

I tried a Tp-Link USB wifi adapter with the pi and it works with the rtl8xxxu driver provided by Slackware, but that driver does not perform nearly as well as the rtl8192eu driver that I compile for use on x86_64 slackware boxes. The pi wifi driver worked very well, when it worked. Something has changed. Can't get the native wifi on the pi to connect at all.

Using an Rpi4 with SARPI installer and etc... 6.1.16 kernel.

FWIW, I followed aarch64 for rpi4, I don't use nmapplet, I have cli connected wifi, I have wpa_supplicant.conf configured, I have small script to initialize wpa_supplicant, bring up wlan0, gateway.

I've just uploaded the latest updates and refreshed the installers, and Wifi works fine on my RPi4 within XFCE out of the box - default full installation.
KDE is completely broken on the RPi presently due to some Kernel issue, so I'm assuming that you haven't installed Slackware AArch64 proper, otherwise you'd have more problems than the WiFi in KDE ;-)

Apart from KDE on the RPi4, it's been stable here for months.
