Re: Multiple active devices


When I install the packages from this repository ( karmic main), if I boot with kernel 2.6.31-15-generic my eeepc freezes shortly after it reaches gdm. With 2.6.31-14-generic it all works ok and kernel 2.6.31-15-generic with network manager from the official repositories also works ok. Is this a kernel bug that should be reported or is this related to network manager in some way?

Thanks in advance. If anything is needed from me to help debug the problem just ask, I'll be glad to help.

Hi Yann,

What you describe is a bug in Network Manager, a fix has been released. Add this to your software sources: karmic main  After you've updated ubuntu Network Manager should work again.

Hi Dan,
for example in Japan I don't have any wifi/cable/dsl router at home. I
directly connect my LAN cable to the wall plug. I suppose my flat's
building has a central DSL or maybe fiber "modem" and access is
brought to everybody inside via standard Ethernet

With Ubuntu9.04, I can connect with NetworkManager by entering my
login/password in the "DSL" tab.
With Ubuntu9.10, I made updates (normal ones, no PPA) 2days ago with
another internet access, and still can't connect at home with
I did a test on another Ubuntu9.10 install : i could connect with the
"sudo pppoeconfig" command.

Hope this helps.
