Networking gone after uninstalling wicd

Postby Marius » Thu May 20, 2010 12:37

I never needed wicd for my network connections. Both ethernet and wireless worked fine with NetworkManager and nm-applet. When wicd was added by default a few months ago to Sabayon I was irritated by the useless pop-up window requesting password with which I was beeing greeted every time I was logging into my Gnome desktop after a boot-up.

I was suffering this behavior patiently and for very long hoping that somebody at finally does something with it. Nobody ever did. I recall that after I voiced my complaints when this behavior began to occur, somebody (wolfden?) advised to uninstall wicd. I finally did. Now, I have no network whatsoever.

This happened, by the way, more than a month ago, a day or two after installing that troublesome kernel .33 that is unbootable on my laptop (powering it off at some 80% of boot sequence left my machine in nearly unusable state when I tried next to boot kernel .31).

Back to my problem. Here are the outputs of lspci, lsmod, rc-update, and ifconfig. I would be grateful for instructions how to fix my problem. To me the problem looks as if some kernel modules are not loaded (let me mention here that all network connection modes [ethernet, wireless] are greyed out in the network-admin window). The question then would be: exactly which? And what would be the proper way to correct this?

Perhaps uninstalling Wicd has removed some files. Have you tried booting a LiveDVD to get Internet access, then chrooting into your HDD installation and then re-installing NetworkManager and nm-applet?

Did you ever solve this, Marius, or are you still without Internet access from your SL installation?
