Hi all,

I know I opened a topic about this before, but it looks like I have a different problem now... (Even though the symptoms are similar).

My knetworkmanager setup was broken when I emerged an updated version of KDE (4.6.5) last week and now I don't know why it's not working. All of my configuration files were the same. When I open knetworkmanager and try to connect to either a wired eth0 or wireless network wlan0, it just won't do it. I previously solved this problem by going into Network Settings before hand and adding a network connection as root.

Now even this doesn't work... When I start up wpa_gui, I also get the message "couldn't get status of wpa_supplicant". This leads me to think this is something wrong with my configuration of KDE and not just knetworkmanager...

I can't think of what it could be! Everything was the same.

Also, I tried revdep-rebuild and it caught some dependencies. When it tries to emerge packages, it says there's no ebuild to satisfy open-office:0 and fails. I don't know if that's relevant, but I'll write it down just in case.

I don't remember all of the configuration files that I edited. I'll list the contents of the ones I remember. If you guys catch something that I miss, please ask me about it.

Thanks!

Sorry for the double post, but I think it might make this easier to read.

I have the /var/log/messages for the NetworkManager daemon as of about half an hour ago. Apparently my network devices keep on disabling themselves? I need to figure out what the "reason" codes mean...

Code:

I have never used dhcpcd as service. Can you connect if you use dhcpcd in standalone mode?

/etc/init.d/dhcpcd stop

and then try to connect.

Sometimes my wifi card gets stuck, reloading the driver, which is the same as your wifi card, usually fix that. Run this as root:

modprobe -r iwlagn
modprobe iwlagn

I noticed that I might have the same problem as: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-899042.html

I have iwlagn compiled into my kernel so it's not a module. But that's okay I think because then it's just always there, right?

I stopped dhcpcd and tried it again. I restarted with the service removed and tried too.

Here are the messages:

For some reason dhcpcd exits after aquiring the DHCP info. I am wondering if this line has something to do with it:

Oct 24 13:14:28 localhost kernel: [ 70.822452] wlan0: no IPv6 routers present

Do you have a IPv6 router? If not, can you check in your connection's "IPv6 Address" tab if the checkbox "IPv6 is required for this connection" in unchecked?

I've made some progress!

To start: None of my managed connections have the ipv6 box checked. I don't know why it's saying that... weird.

I tried connecting to an unsecured wireless network and that is done successfully. I don't know what was different! What I did a few days ago was add in a section for the plugdev group to /etc/dbus-1/NetworkManager-kde4.conf. It was overwritten when I emerged a newer version of kde. I don't know if it helped, because the wireless still wasn't working. Also, I had to change it to "System Connection", which I didn't need to do before everything broke again.

There are still two problems:

1) A secured network still doesn't work. The one I have access to uses WPA personal. Maybe my wpa_supplicant is misconfigured? When I open the gui, it says that it can't get the status of wpa_supplicant. ("Could not get status of wpa_supplicant") I forget what I did last time to fix this...

2) Ethernet connection doesn't work. This has me completely baffled, because ethernet connection is supported well enough to usually "just work". What's even stranger is that if I reboot with the cable in the port and NetworkManager disabled, I can connect fine. But as soon as I unplug or enable NetworkManager in anyway, I lose the connection and I can't get it back. Even if I disable NM again and use ifconfig to setup the eth0 interface.

By the way, thank you very much for your replies! I hope that I can get it sorted out soon.

Again, sorry for the double post. I just tried the WPA personal secured network and it works...

I think lamarque's suggestion to stop dhcpcd from being on the default runlevel might have done it. It might also be due to me running a successful revdep-rebuild. (Openoffice was recently renamed libreoffice, so I just unmerged openoffice and ran the revdep-rebuild. I guess I'll emerge libreoffice sometime when I have like 20 hours of nothing to do. :P)

I'll confirm if the eth0 interface is working properly tomorrow and if it is, I'll mark this thread solved.

Thank you guys very much for your help! I post threads on the forums as a last resort and every time you have come through for me. :D :D

If you are using NM-0.9 you need to upgrade wpa_supplicant to at least wpa_supplicant-0.7.3-r3 or NM will not be able to communicate with wpa_supplicant. By what I see in your log NM is communicating with wpa_supplicant, so probably you are using NM-0.8.

The fact that dhcpcd was running as a service probably caused a conflict with NM. You can also check if you have any other network management software running (like wicd, ifplugd, etc). Usually running more than one network management software at the same time is a bad idea.

Yes, I my wpa_supplicant is up to date. I re-emerged it yesterday.

It looks like everything's working!

Thanks for your help. :D
