Re: NM Shutting Down

Hello -

  What distro & version of NM/wpa_supplicant are you using?

Just had the failure again, and still no supplicant log.

"disassociated due to inactivity"

That can be any number of reasons, if there's any way to get AP logs,
that would help.  Otherwise it could be a driver problem.  But it's
pretty clear that it's an issue lower than NetworkManager.  To figure
that out, we need detailed supplicant debugging logs.  You can do this
via the instructions here:

Then we'll get more information about why.

I don't have a /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log file, so I edited /usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/fi.w1.wpa_supplicant1.service and added to Exec=: -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log, then restarted NetworkManager.

Still don't have the log file for some reason, but went ahead and
sudo dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=fi.w1.wpa_supplicant1 /fi/w1/wpa_supplicant1 org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Set string:fi.w1.wpa_supplicant1 string:DebugTimestamp variant:boolean:true
sudo dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=fi.w1.wpa_supplicant1 /fi/w1/wpa_supplicant1 org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Set string:fi.w1.wpa_supplicant1 string:DebugLevel variant:string:"msgdump"

To each it responded with the obtuse:
method return sender=:1.12 -> dest=:1.50 reply_serial=2

That is normal. All it means is that the debugging output to the debug file should be what you requested. I agree that it is obtuse, however realize that the response is from dbus.

Clearly NM is as busted as it's always been.

I'm not even a NM dev - however I would expect that insulting the people who can help you isn't the best way. I've found help on the IRC channel to be superb and timely. Also you are also free to uninstall NM and do all the manual wpa configuration yourself. Having just played with wpa_supplicant on its own without NM to debug some stuff I can tell you that NM is awesome and I wouldn't wish managing wpa interfaces manually on anyone.
