I think this started happening a couple of months ago when I upgraded from 10.04 to 12.04.
Whenever I reboot, network-manager does not start. I have to manually run
sudo start network-manager, and then everything works fine.
Things I have already tried (rebooting after each attempted fix):
- Verified that all of the /etc/rc*.d/*network-manager links exist the way they should.
- Since network-manager's upstart config file mentions
local-filesystems, and my fstab had a reference to a USB HDD that is not connected, I commented that line out of the fstab.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure network-managerand then
sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager
- Looked in syslog for hints, didn't see anything that jumped out.
I don't think I've modified
/etc/init/network-manager.conf, but here it is for reference:
# network-manager - network connection manager # # The Network Manager daemon manages the system's network connections, # automatically switching between the best available. description "network connection manager" start on (local-filesystems and started dbus and static-network-up) stop on stopping dbus expect fork respawn script # set $LANG so that messages appearing on the GUI will be translated.
