NetworkManager won't become "active"

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Hi,

I just rebooted my FC14 x86_64 desktop, and there's no networking. I
have a bridge set up with eth0, and despite my best efforts, can't get
eth0 to be "active" in "Network Device Control". The activate/deactive
buttons are greyed out.

At one point I was able to click Activate, but even then it wouldn't
actually activate it. For now, I've just run "ifup br0" and it
successfully acquired a DHCP address.

I've tried variations of "Controlled by NetworkManager" and other
ideas I've read in similar threads (mostly from a few years ago), with
no success.

Here are the contents of /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices

ifcfg-eth0:
DEVICE=eth0
HWADDR=48:5b:XX:61:b5:5c
ONBOOT=yes
BRIDGE=br0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
TYPE=Ethernet
NM_CONTROLLED=yes
USERCTL=yes
PEERDNS=yes
IPV6INIT=no

ifcfg-br0:
DEVICE=br0
TYPE=Bridge
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes
DELAY=0
IPV6INIT=no
USERCTL=yes

There are a few syslog entries in messages that might help:

I hope that's legible. What does that mean? Trying to restart the dbus service:

[[email protected] network-scripts]# ps ax|grep dbus
 1296 ?        Ssl    0:14 dbus-daemon --system
 2225 ?        S      0:00 dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session

 2555 ?        S      0:00 dbus-launch

24684 pts/2    S+     0:00 grep --color=auto dbus
[[email protected] network-scripts]# service dbus restart
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl  restart dbus.service
Failed to get D-Bus connection: Failed to connect to socket
/org/freedesktop/systemd1/private: Connection refused

There is also a computer with a red X in the top panel.

Where can I find a good overview of how this all works and interacts
with udev? I would like to learn everything about it eventually, but
for now where can I learn the basics about how it makes decisions on
how the networking works?

Thanks,
Alex
