GNOME 3 and nm-applet
Looks like GNOME 3 doesn't need nm-applet any more. Moreover, it competes with the shell's network agent for new connections. Does anyone copy this? Should this be mentioned on the page?
Isn't the suggested solution a little bit overkill? (Revert to using dhcpcd with NetworkManager) Also kind of assumes that dhclient is the problem. Which I do not believe to be the case. Rather then switch back to dhcpcd you could just have dhclient push the hostname. A la "send host-name" in the dhclient.conf. Ortango (talk) 18:57, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
- I agree, especially the linked forums thread is confusing at least. It seems like a solution for a different problem with hostname problems only as a side effect. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 12:40, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
Fails to auto-connect
I was having an issue with getting NM to auto connect to known APs. I ran 'systemd-analyze blame' and found that I still had dhcpcd@<myadapter>.service enabled and it was taking a very long time to initialize. I disabled it, and now NM works perfectly. I noticed that in the wiki page it doesn't mention to disable this service, only to disable your previous wifi management system. Hope this helps! MagnumXopus (talk) 00:37, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
