No Network Capability [Solved]

I accidentally deleted NetworkManager in the hopes of using WICD which I couldn't get to work anyway! Now I'm stuff with no network capability at all! I want to get NM back. I believe there's a way to upload NM from the live CD but I don't know how to do it. Can someone provide assistance?

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

get the tarball at http://dl.sabayon.org/entropy/standard/ ... 58f~0.tbz2

and run from the downloaded folder :

Code: Select all

# equo i net-misc:networkmanager-1.4.0-r1.56fff6dd78111f54c90476f59bd5008c5207b58f~0.tbz2
enable the service

Code: Select all

 # systemctl enable NetworkManager
and cross the fingers

PS : do this for all required depedences if removed

Whoa!!! It worked! I downloaded the tarball on another pc then copied it to the sabayon pc and ran the 1st step. I rec'd an error but tried the 2nd step anyway, then rebooted. System came up and connected automatically as always! Now, if I want to try WICD again after installing I would do the command: # systemctl disable NetworkManager? Is that correct?

Where are you located in Italy? We were just there a few years ago. Fly in and out of Venice and then by train to Florence and Rome. Great vacation!

Thank you for the quick reply, sabayonino

marked as SOLVED

please , consider to disable/anable NM or WICD the services for future use

keep in mind that both service can't run in the same time.

PS : I live near Venice :roll:

Thank you for marking thread as Solved. Trying to disable NM to use WICD is where I got into trouble. I deleted NM. Now everything seems to be working properly. I ran deptest and libtest and all looks good.

I live just north of Tampa, Florida USA.

Take care
