There is checking to figure out what distribution you're running on, if
you could verify that the initscript found in
initscript/Debian/NetworkManager gets installed in the correct place
_and_ that you turned it on appropriately (ie, in Fedora you have to run
'chkconfig --level 2345 NetworkManager on' to actually turn it on) that
would be great.

NMI should always be run as your user of course, so there seems to be an
issue here.  Can you tell me what verison of DBus you're running, and
what the contents of /etc/dbus-1/system.d/NetworkManagerInfo.conf is,
that would help a lot.  I believe (and John Palmieri or Colin Walters
can correct me) that the version of dbus you're running has to have the
Console User permissions patch so that NetworkManagerInfo program can
access the system bus.
