NetworkManager fails to start (missing libiw.so.28)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.just type NetworkManager in a root shell
"NetworkManager: error while loading shared libraries: libiw.so.28: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory"
Obviously eth0 will not work
NetworkManager should start
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.
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
