Re: NM and Gentoo (via Gentopia)

I use Gentoo. I installed NM via the Gentopia overlay. I started the
"NetworkManager" and "dhcdbd" init scripts and I set up pam_console as
indicated. I think pam_console is working properly, because ownership
for things like /dev/sounds/dsp changes as necessary when I log in.

When I try running nm-applet, I get 4 message boxes saying

"The NetworkManager applet could not find some required resources.  It
cannot continue."

I click them away, and when I ps ax, I find that 4 instances of
nm-applet exist. When I kill those, I get the 4 message boxes again. I
think the applet restarts itself as part of the GNOME session.

Either way, I cannot use NetworkManager in any way.

What "resources" does nm-applet need to run ? IOW, I wish its error
message was a little more explanatory.

Please help me get NetworkManager running!

Did you make sure that nm-applet could talk to the nm deamon through dbus? Some tweaking was required at one point in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/

Hope that helps.
