Thread: NetworkManager package dependency

  1. #1

    Default NetworkManager package dependency

    Lenovo Thinkpad R61i
    Opensuse 13

    WLAN Interface Unavailable. Greyed out.

    I looked it up and found out it might have something to do with NetworkManager.
    I searched for NetworkManager in YaST and got no results.
    So I got the NetworkManager-0.9.8.8-213.30.i586.rpm file.
    Tried to install it. It had a dependency thing.
    So I installed the thing it was dependent for.
    Then it did another. This one for libnl-3.so.200(libnl_3).
    I attempted to install libnl3-200-3.2.22-2.1.2.i586.rpm but it had a dependency for libnl-config-3.2.22-52.6.noarch.rpm.
    So I installed the one and then the other. But it still says it needs libnl-3.so.200(libnl_3).
    And now I'm stuck. Ideas?

    What Desktop Environment are you using(KDE, Gnome,XFCE, etc)?
    Did you install from DVD, Live DVD or upgrade over network?

    Are you running YAST2 GUI?

    Normally, Yast will identify dependencies and install all at once, so your load dialog sounds a bit strange.

    Did your install load the Laptop Pattern?
    Usually, when a Laptop is (automagically) detected the Laptop Pattern is installed and tools like NetMagaer properly setup, since wifi is presumed.

    What was the exact "dependency thing"?

    Are you running 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Have you checked the wireless forum to see if the sticky there addresses
    your question?

    Come to that, perhaps we should move this thread over there.

    It is a laptop. It is 32-bit.
    This is what it says when I try to install PackageManager.
    nothing provides libnl-3.so.200(libnl_3) needed by NetworkManager-0.9.8.8-213.30.i586
    If I install this and it still doesn't work properly, I'll start assuming it's hardware.

    Don't install this!
    Just use the NetworkManager that is included with the distribution. It should be installed by default.

    But you might have to enable NetworkManager in YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings->Global Options.

    And maybe you need to install a driver/firmware for your network card.
    Please post the output of:
    Code:
    lspci -nnk

    Why are you trying to install "PackageManager"?

    Dependency resolution isn't hardware related - but we don't have enough
    information to help you at this stage.

    Can you provide step-by-step information about what you're running, what
    you're selecting, and so on? If you want to take screenshots, use the
    PrtSc key and post them to paste.opensuse.org, and then post links to the
    screenshots here so we can see what you're seeing.

    Do you have a wired connection available to get packages installed from
    online repositories?
