Your NetworkManager daemon is not running. Run `/etc/init.d/NetworkManager start'
If you plan to use NetworkManager on a daily basis I recommend you 'rc-update add NetworkManager' so it starts automatically.

Thanks! Solved my issue exactly -- too bad revdep-rebuild didn't detect the issue and do this for me... :?
