I ran a yum update tonite and after a reboot I no longer had a copy of the Network Manager in my system tray. Also I could no longer run the Network Manager (nm-applet) from the command line. It ran but still failed to show up in the system tray.
Plus if I ran "ifup etho" I got an error that the network was 'down'. And finally I went to the network device control and it showed no devices.
Fortunately I run an rsync backup before I do any updates. I ran an rsync restore of the following directories and everything is back to where it was before the update.
Anyone have any thoughts per the Network Manager issue ?
Thanks in advance
