Is NetworkManager running?

Comment 4 Frank Murphy 2010-04-13 13:44:41 UTC
(In reply to comment #3)
> Is NetworkManager running?    

This reply is from the running Live boot.

Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2010-04-17 20:34:56 UTC
What I was seeing for this is that NetworkManager is running until I click Next in anaconda, then NetworkManager crashesd. It happened reliably a bunch of times, then didn't happen when I was running dbus-monitor to try and figure out what was going on. When it crashed with 'NetworkManager --no-daemon' the backtrace indicated it was a D-Bus exception triggered by the NetworkManager code trying to send an error message back.

Network Manager debug output

OK, so when I installed debuginfo packages, I was able to get a more informative output. Output from NetworkManager --no-daemon attached.

[ The crash of NetworkManager actually occurs when anaconda is started, it's only the anaconda crash that happens when you hit Next ]

Samsung N150 traceback

I also encountered this bug on my Samsung N150 netbook. The netbook uses a Realtek 8192E wireless card and a Ralink ethernet card. Traceback attached.

Comment 9 Dan Williams 2010-04-22 20:32:58 UTC
This is both a dbus-glib bug and an NM bug.  We'll work around it in NM since NM's ifcfg-rh system settings plugin is doing something stupid to trigger this in dbus-glib.

For reference, the upstream dbus-glib bug is:
