Need Help with NetworkManager/WPA_Supplicant

Question

Hello All,

 

I had to do a full install of my laptop. It had been running fine since the Jackass days on Gentoo. Dang Raid0 and old backups.

Anyway I redid my laptop and I am having trouble with Networkmanager. Here is what is in NeworkManager.conf

[main]
plugins=ifupdown,keyfile

[ifupdown]
managed=false

wpa_supplicant.conf

network={
ssid="clinistar1-5Ghz"
psk="xxxxxxxxxxxx"
}

If I run 'rc-status', networkmanager is crashed and wpa_supplicant is up. I have network connectivity but only on the one defined in wpa_supplicant.

I do not get any selections nor does KDE Neworkmanagement fire anymore. I need this because I have multilple selections in the house and VPN.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks,

Tony

I reoved the networkmanage.conf and it seems to be working now. The 'addwifi' didn't seem t work. Turns out it doesn't like

'!!' exclamation points in the password setting.

 

Thanks for your help

BTW...I just recompiled networkmanager to get rid of the error above.

You shouldn't run wpa_supplicant -- only add NetworkManager to your runlevel, and use the "addwifi" command to add your connection. I typically don't have a NetworkManager.conf at all. "addwifi" will create an entry in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections.

I trie to do what ya said and then I got another error for 'Addwifi'. It used to be so easy, lol!

sudo addwifi -S wpa -K 'Wnhj853ycat' clinistar1-5Ghz
Error: nmcli (0.9.10.0) and NetworkManager (unknown) versions don't match. Force execution using --nocheck, but the results are unpredictable.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/addwifi", line 164, in <module>
    main()
  File "/usr/sbin/addwifi", line 161, in main
    block_until_created(args.ssid, args.retries, args.interval)
  File "/usr/sbin/addwifi", line 81, in block_until_created
    nmcli_con_list = check_output(['nmcli', 'con', 'show'], universal_newlines=True)
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.3/subprocess.py", line 589, in check_output
    raise CalledProcessError(retcode, process.args, output=output)

Thanks,

Tony
