I run Clear as a Development desktop. I’m on this machine all day every day and every hour I spend fixing things that mysteriously break is an hour I’m not being productive.
This morning I rebooted for the kernel updates (which were only made apparent after the gnome login window froze and I switch to a terminal tty, but that is a separate annoyance), and upon reboot, NetworkManager in gnome was no longer working as expected.
I have a number of development networks I VPN in to depending on specific tasks and I use the gnome NetworkManager to make it easy to switch networks, etc.
I found the following in my
user@Machine /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d $ head -n 1 systemd-networkd-unmanaged.conf # created by swupd on Tue 21 May 2019 08:04:20 PM EDT
If gnome’s NetworkManager should not be managing any of my network interfaces, then what should I be using? To get myself working today I commented out all of the lines of the file, but I would rather have the right solution in place. Any explanation or advice would be appreciated.
