• DHCPCD not enabled on clean install


    After a clean install, my wireless would flip out, connecting for a second then disconnecting.

    this is a few seconds of my log during it.

    I went to install dhclient assuming dhcpcd was on the fritz, but was surprised to find that ‘sudo systemctl disable dhcpcd’ didn’t kick out any feedback. Using ‘systemctl enable dhcpcd’ made the proper links and a ‘systemctl start dhcpcd’ solved the problem.

    oops?

    Bug or did I miss something during the install?

    Edit: I don’t know a lot about NetworkManager, but I’m thinking I was wrong about dhcpcd needing to be enabled at all. Simply installing dhclient probably solved my problem as a blank networkmanager.conf prefers dhclient to dhcpcd.

  • After a clean install, my wireless would flip out, connecting for a second then disconnecting.

    this is a few seconds of my log during it.

    I went to install dhclient assuming dhcpcd was on the fritz, but was surprised to find that ‘sudo systemctl disable dhcpcd’ didn’t kick out any feedback. Using ‘systemctl enable dhcpcd’ made the proper links and a ‘systemctl start dhcpcd’ solved the problem.

    oops?

    Bug or did I miss something during the install?

    Edit: I don’t know a lot about NetworkManager, but I’m thinking I was wrong about dhcpcd needing to be enabled at all. Simply installing dhclient probably solved my problem as a blank networkmanager.conf prefers dhclient to dhcpcd.
