I'm getting to grips with SystemD, tying up some loose ends with setting it up and integrating it with my workflow. I want Slim to fire up only after networking has found a connection to the Internet and successfully connected, as Slim fires up Chromium on startup to connect to my favourite websites.
Currently, the startup sequence boots up the NetworkManager and then fires up X and my Window Manager, which is Slim with AwesomeWM. I'm assuming that the NetworkManager is firing up before Slim, is there a way of finding out?
I've tried enabling the NetworkManager Wait Online service but it does not seem to do anything to help solve the issue. What's the first steps I should do? Any diagnostics you would like me to add to this post to help figure out the issue?
