Description Nicolò 2007-06-06 17:32:31 UTC
Description of problem:
NetworkManager fails to start (both at boot and after login) and complains 
about missing shared lib: libiw.so.28

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
NeworkManager 1:0.6.5-3.fc7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
3.just type NetworkManager in a root shell
Actual results:
"NetworkManager: error while loading shared libraries: libiw.so.28: cannot 
open shared object file: No such file or directory"
Obviously eth0 will not work

Expected results:
NetworkManager should start

Additional info:
I don't have any libiw in my computer, and couldn't find any libiw***.rpm, 
maybe a dependency is missing?

BTW If I manually ifup eth0, it just works.

It should be in the wireless-tools package....  wonder why you don't have that,
the dependencies should have picked it up.

Comment 2 Nicolò 2007-06-06 19:01:41 UTC
Installing wireless-tools solved the problem, I wonder why I didn't have it 
installed too (maybe because I don't have a Wireless device, but I don't think 
the installer makes this kind of guess...)

I think this could be closed, thanks for the fast reply...

K, closing out.

Also for future reference, if you know the name of the file you need, you can
always do something like:

  yum install /usr/lib/libiw.so.28
