Re: NetworkManager doesn't "Connect automatically"

That seems doable.

That makes sense.  I've tried applying a patch like the one attached to
this email.  Even though NetworkManager builds, and the output in the
build log suggests that it's using systemd (really, elogind) for session
tracking, it still doesn't automatically connect.  There are messages
from NetworkManager in my syslog messages (see attached file
"excerpts-from-logs.txt"), but there appears to be no information about
why NetworkManager is not automatically connecting.

Does the patch and build output look reasonable to you?  Perhaps I
missed something obvious.  What's a good way to debug this?  What code
path is supposed to be executed when NetworkManager automatically
connects?  How can I verify if that code path is being executed?  Even a
simple tip to get me going in the right direction would be very helpful.

Thank you,
