Network connection manager gone/not working

Hi all, new guy here..

Have done a hour or so of searching, not having any luck.
VERY new to Linux, so please use small words..

OK, Fresh install of Fedora 14 from Live cd. Used it for an hour or so, d-loaded some programs, had ti all running great. Wired connection to internet. Had the Network Connection Manager icon in panel. There was an icon saying new updates, alot of them, like 400 or so. Told it to go ahead and up date, left room. Came back hour later was done, said it needed to re boot, so I did. From then on, no internet, not icon, no Network Connection in the drop down list for preferences.
What I have tried:
Worked off live cd, again, all works fine, icon, manager, internet all there.
In installed version: In terminal, typed service Network Manager, it said unrecognized service.
Did yum install network manager. It started to do it, but looked like it was trying to get stuff off mirrors, and of course there is no internet access. error PYCURJ ERROR 6.

Of course I can re install, but I figure I will just end up in the same place a few hours from now.

Anyway sorry about the wall of text.
Any info appreciated.
Have a good one,
geo

PS. IBM Thinkpad Z60m. if that matters

Re: Network connection manager gone/not working

Hello,

I am not a NetworkManger user, I like network, but if you are using a wireless card then you need NetworkManger.

post output

# chkconfig --list |grep etw
# lspci |grep -i eth

May need to just start NWM
# service NetworkManager start
Make it start at boot
# chkconfig --level 35 NetworkManager on

Not tech savy enough to cut paste from one comp to the other, so here is basically what I get. In order from above.

network 0:ff 1:off 2:off 4 5 6 all same

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corp. Nextreme BCM5751M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 11)

unrecognized service

error reading information on service NetworkManager: Bad file descriptor

Thank you for the help.
Above info any more help?

The problem may be very simple and may not need intruding into the system at all. I would advise first to reboot the machine again. After 400+ updates to a system installed by Fedora 14 installer, which is now 6 months old, the first boot may some glitches.

Thank you for the input, but re booting was the first thing I tried. And by now I have gone back and forth with the livecd and shut the whole mess down several times.

Again, I appreciate the input.

OK there it is. My copy paste job rammed it all together, so I had to manually format it.
So might not be perfect...
Anyway, this any help?
You had said earlier about wireless, do not need that. Just want to get the ethernet going again. So if there is another way to do that??
Again, thanx,
geo

Re: Network connection manager gone/not working

It looks like you might be leaving a space in the name. It really should be 'NetworkManager'. Note: Linux is space and case sensitive.
