Thread: Upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 caused a strange issue.

    Default Upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 caused a strange issue.

    I took the plunged and upgraded to 11.4 and for the most part I like it. It's not as buggy as 11.3 and seems a lot faster. Though post upgrade left my machine crippled from Yast refusing to load applets in GUI mode until I switched display setting from auto to qt. Plus the missing halt.local which I had to set RUN_PARALLEL to no is System/Boot, and a lot of other things I've had to work through, but one issue for the life of me I can't seem to fix.

    My wireless connection will not work anywhere but the place I installed the upgrade. I upgraded my computer at work with WICD on a Wired connection, then after it finished I connected to the AP with no problems. However when I went to my home I noticed I could not authenticate anymore. So I thought maybe it was my network, but all my other wireless devices worked perfectly. So I made a non encrypted AP and still no dice, instead of not authenticating it just would connect and then immediately drop the connection.

    I took it back to work and tried to connect and it works flawlessly. The only difference at work is the encryption is Wpa2-psk TKIP. While at home it's CCMP-AES, but that doesn't account for the inability to connect to open networks.

    I tried Netconfig by manually setting it up and connecting which seems to allow it to auth, but then it drops immediately and starts over. Network Manager just keeps asking for the password and the log repeats a line about "New Secret" I'll have to go read the log again to get the exact message, but it's basically requesting the key in an infinite loop without showing any other errors.

    I'm using the B43 driver which has worked flawless in the past and works perfectly at work as well. No instability issues or any other quirks. It works flawlessly at my offices, but no where else.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried configuring via the network manager (using plasmoid-networkmanagement) and kwallet enabled. The latter is required for managing multiple encrypted keys:

    Do I need to use Kwallet for wireless encryption key to work in openSUSE11.3 KDE?

    BTW, when I upgraded recently, I kept /home, and had to remove the /home/dean/.kde4/share/apps/networkmanagement/connections/ directory IIRC.

    First off
    11.3 and 11.4 are both rock solid IMO

    So if you think 11.3 was buggy and just upgraded. But didn't care to explain exactly how you managed that process. I suspect you may have undergone such in a way not likely to result in success.

    Nevertheless, my first recommendation to you is create a new user login to test things. See how things work in a new account.

    11.2 was rock solid. 11.3 had severe issues with pulseaudio, and nautilus was completely unusable for me as it managed to lock up just attempting to browse files. It was at the time so horrid that I had to switch to Dolphin to have a decent graphical file-manager.

    Also I'm sorry if I struck a cord with you, but I used the official supported method with zypper as specified here SDB:System upgrade - openSUSE. I tried KDE in 11.3 and didn't like it so I switched back to GNOME.

    So in short. 11.2 was extremely solid for me, 11.3 was not, and 11.4 is very solid except for the wireless issue. I use Gnome 2, and I'm running it on an Acer Aspire One, Model: Kav60.

    Thank you in advance,

    This may sound odd, but I had originally used he WL driver back with 11.2 and had problems with it dropping connection, which is why I switched to B43 in the first place. I mean at my work it works flawlessly for hours with no lagging or anything of the sort.

    I just have a feeling something is not configured correctly with the Wpa_supplicant. If it's alright I'm going to post my Network Manager, Wpa_supplicant, and Dmesg logs. Then if it still seems to be a driver issue I'll switch over.

    You need Larry to advise. It's beyond me.

    b43 works better in kernel 3
    But that's another complication you don't really need.

    Your wireless is authenticating and associating, but is deauthenticating after
    10 seconds for reason 3, which is "Deauthenticated because sending station is
    leaving (or has left) IBSS or ESS.". I don't know why that is happening.

    From the subject of this thread, I expect that your Broadcom wireless worked
    with this AP under 11.3. Is that correct?

    Is it possible for you to download a copy of the openSUSE 12.1 RC1 Live CD? If
    so, please do so and burn the CD. Before you boot it, copy the contents of
    /lib/firmware/b43/ to a USB stick. After the Live CD is booted, copy those files
    to /lib/firmware/b43/, then unload and reload b43 using

    Code:
    sudo /sbin/modprobe -rv b43
    sudo /sbin/modprobe -v b43
    Does that work?

    Do you have access to another machine with a wireless interface? If so, we might
    see what is happening by running wireshark to capture what is on the air.
