No network: nm-applet doesn't show up, complains about d-bus
Last modified: 2010-08-31 09:41:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Since yesterday's updates (20100818) nm-applet doesn't show up, and the network doesn't work. Neither WiFi (set up to connect automatically) nor eth0 (static configuration for my account). Luckily I still remember how to configure eth0 by hand :-/
Running the following ($ ~~-> me, # ~~-> root):
An instance of nm-applet is already running.
** (nm-applet:3606): WARNING **: <WARN> constructor(): Couldn't initialize the D-Bus manager.
# nmcli dev status
** (process:4050): WARNING **: nm_client_get_devices: error getting devices: Unit NetworkManager-by-dbus.service failed to load. See logs for details.
DEVICE TYPE STATE
Last line of /var/log/messages is:
Aug 19 10:04:27 laptop14 kernel: init: D-Bus activation failed for NetworkManager-by-dbus.service: Invalid argument
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happened yesterday at home (WiFi) now here at work (eth0)
Steps to Reproduce:
No network, no nm-applet icon
Network working normally
Yupp, NM doesn't enable it's unit files properly. dcbw already prepared a fix for this. Reassigning to NM in meantime.
It works now. Closing.
