Wired network keep dropping out

Hi,

I got funtoo running but the wired networking keeps dropping out. I have to type

/etc/init.d/dhcped restart

every a few minutes.
Can anyone point the possible source of this problem? Thank you very much.

Re: Wired network keep dropping out

Uninstalled NetworkManager and now the connection is stable.... What other management package can I use?

Re: Wired network keep dropping out

Do you have dhcpd and NetworkManager running as daemons? only need run one
wicd is another network manager

Re: Wired network keep dropping out

Both are on default. Now I'm running without manager. Tried wicd same problem. Do I need manager to config wireless?

Re: Wired network keep dropping out

Either you use dhcp or NetworkMangager but not both. Same is true for wicd. Here's status of my daemons :

Runlevel: default
 dbus                                                              [  started  ]
 metalog                                                           [  started  ]
 consolekit                                                        [  started  ]
 wicd                                                              [  started  ]
 cupsd                                                             [  started  ]
 fcron                                                             [  started  ]
 gpm                                                               [  started  ]
 netmount                                                          [  started  ]
 local                                                             [  started  ]

As you can see only wicd is running. In my other instance of Funtoo, I use nm and only nm is started at boot time. funtoo installation guide tells how to install and configure nm.

Re: Wired network keep dropping out

Now I delete dhcpcd, netif.eth0 from default rc layer. Only NetworkManager start by default. In this setup I can use wifi connection. But I still have some problems:

1. GUI WIFI interface doesn't work in Gnome 3, I have to use addwifi command.
2. Wifi sometimes drops connection, I use

/etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart 

to get connected.

Here is my hardware(Macbook Pro 8,2):

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM57765 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10)
02:00.1 SD Host controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM57765 Memory Card Reader (rev 10)
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 02)

Wifi driver should be loaded:

[   13.478531] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4331 WLAN found (core revision 29)
[   13.479663] Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: PNL ]

Here is rc-status:

Runlevel: default
 hwclock                                                                               [  started  ]
 netmount                                                                              [  started  ]
 dbus                                                                                  [  started  ]
 NetworkManager                                                                        [  started  ]
 metalog                                                                               [  started  ]
 consolekit                                                                            [  started  ]
 fcron                                                                                 [  started  ]
 sshd                                                                                  [  started  ]
 local                                                                                 [  started  ]

Here is networking interface in /etc/init.d

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   10 Jan 26 17:28 /etc/init.d/netif.eth0 -> netif.tmpl
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  521 Jan 14 04:05 /etc/init.d/netif.lo
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6.5K Jan 14 04:05 /etc/init.d/netif.tmpl
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2.2K Jan 14 04:05 /etc/init.d/netmount

How can I get the wifi stable?

Re: Wired network keep dropping out

Don't use Network Mangler, er I mean Manager.  wink  Just use the openrc network scripts, then emerge wpa-supplicant with the qt4 flag enabled.  This will give you a GUI to configure/scan/join.  I haven't tried it since gnome2.  Don't know if gnome3 likes it or not.

Re: Wired network keep dropping out

Please submit issue to JIRA: http://bugs.funtoo.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa

Way NetworkManager is installed is Funtoo relevant. Is gnome-extra/nm-applet installed ? You need it if you want to use a GUI in  GNOME environment.
