Re: update broke NetworkManager

Hi All;


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.

nm_applet runs in the Notification Area. Did you lose your Notification Area?

I have 5 different applets running in mine, including Bluetooth Manager, Power Manager, NetworkManager Applet, Weather Report, and Volumne Applet. I'd notice if all 5 disappeared from my panel....

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.


bin
boot
etc
lib
lib64
lost+found
opt
root
sbin
selinux
srv
usr
var



Anyone have any thoughts per the Network Manager issue ?



Thanks in advance
