Re: Fwd: Having a hard time with NetworkManager on ArchLinux

Hi Yves,

seeing your other emails, it seems that you got it working now?
Are there any issues left?

From the log file, one thing I see is that it fails to get an IPv6
address using router discovery (SLAAC). Likely your router, does
not announce IPv6 routes, so NetworkManager fails activating the
connection because it gets no addresses.

If you still have issues, try to connect first with IPv6 disabled (or
tick the check-box saying something like "proceed on even if IPv6
addresses fail".

This just dawned on me, but should I have dhcpcd running while trying
to connect with NetworkManager?

No, if you use NetworkManager, you don't have to start any of these
demons yourself. NetworkManager will (depending on the configuration)
start them when it needs to.

Hello Thomas,

I executed your command and this is what I see.  This is the dump from
the log that I have.

        If you are using NetworkManager (or wicd, ConnMan, ...), you
        manually use ip, dhclient, ... (unless you have a good reason

        Usually, NetworkManager (the deamon) starts at boot time, as
        you enabled
        it with systemctl. What you click on, is a GUI front-end, to
        NetworkManger what to do. Probably it's nm-applet (Gnome3 and
        usually come with different ones).

        You should check, that the WiFi connection you are trying to
        connect is
        properly configured. You can right-click on the icon of
        nm-applet and do
        "Edit connections".
        If you cannot figure out whats wrong, it might be helpful to
        look at the
        logfiles and provide more information
          journalctl -b 0 _SYSTEMD_UNIT=NetworkManager.service

        Sure, that sounds doable :)
