Network Manager breaks on update

installed the F12 alpha, did updates. Network Manager failed to update and now is missing on restart, so I cannot get online to grab it.

How do I fix this? Any help would be appreciated

I guess you mean that the old NetworkManager (this is it just didn't update but the previous one is still there)
is still there and the problem is that some how the configuration is messed up and it won't start
NM after bootup?

If so, do

su -c 'service NetworkManager start'
<root password>

that should get NM to run, so you can get your packages

then also run system-config-services and confirm that NetworkManager is setup to run and network isn't

setting network parameters OK
Starting Network Manager daemon OK

but no icon for network connections
try to launch network connections from menu with no luck

Any other thoughts?

You can manually start the network at any time, just run

ifup eth0
or
ifup wlan0
(for wireless)

as root unless you have the interface set up so users can start/stop it

No luck still

Marcko,

Still not having any luck. If I reinstall F12 from the alpha image, will the network manager update continue to break?

Not sure when to reinstall from

try disabling the NetworkManager service and using system-config-network (the old way) to configure the network.

Pratt,

If you're looking for the network manager icon in the system tray, it comes from nm-applet. After you follow the above instructions for starting the Network Manager service, try alt-f2 and run nm-applet or, just type nm-applet at a command prompt with your normal (non-su) ID. (edit: I'm not running my F12 version right now... but am assuming the nm-applet program name didn't get changed.)

Jeff.

Yes, on my Fedora 12 Alpha, the nm-applet is in /usr/bin/nm-applet

My parameters were -

nm-applet --sm-disable

See attached Screenshot-4.

Other applicable discussion at "Network Manager done pulled a Houdini" -

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=231113

"...
I had to go into > System > Administration > Network Configuration and make sure that my "ETH0" was active...default was inactive as well as "Activate device when computer starts" as well as "Allow all users to enable and disable the device"
..."

Hope this helps.
