[testing this on a system with 1.2.6]

I have a setup that (will be) a read-only root file system with RW
/home directory. To allow for network changes, I have mapped the
keyfile path in NetworkManager.conf to /home. However when I do this
I get an error when trying save a connection (nmcli connection add
gives me No plugin supported adding this connection, connection edit
/ save gives me read-only file system). If I map keyfile path to
anywhere but /home, such as /tmp or /etc/TEST it works fine.

Any idea why this won't work with any subdirectories in the /home


/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service contains:


See `man systemd.exec`. You may change that via

  $ systemctl edit NetworkManager.service 

but a better idea would be to choose a directory like
/var/lib/NetworkManager, which is required to be read-write and
persisted. Also, because NetworkManager is a system daemon and has no
business with your home directory.
