    Default AW: WiFi setup lost after reboot or shutdown

    Can you switch to the "old" Version of wpa-supplicant and see, if it works?
    Code:
    S  | Name                         | Typ        | Version         | Arch   | Repository

    i+ | wpa_supplicant               | Paket      | 2.6-lp151.5.3.1 | x86_64 | OSS-Update      
    v  | wpa_supplicant               | Paket      | 2.6-lp151.4.4   | x86_64 | OSS

       | wpa_supplicant-gui-debuginfo | Paket      | 2.6-lp151.4.4   | x86_64 | Debug-Repository
    Or use wpa_supplicant from the network Repo:
    https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...p_15.1/x86_64/

    Yes, if i downgrade wpa_supplicant to 2.6-lp151.4.4.x86_64 it works as before. I opened bug 1167319 https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1167319

    Why not adding it to the bug I mentioned?

    I installed the older version of wpa_supplicant using Yast. Isn't the version that keeps trying to update my system the broken version or am I missing something? Installing the older version of wpa_supplicant does result in a network connection after a restart. Would copying the version shown above to my system and installing manually fix the problem? It seems like I'd end up unable to connect again.

    Install the version that works. Then lock that version so it won't update. To lock in Yast, right-click on the installed package, and select "protected - do not modify".

    You will probably get a conflict when running Yast online update, and one of the choices will be to skip that patch.

    I probably should have. But that bugs description indicated a wifi setup failure and indicated the interface could only be managed by network manager and that wicked fails. My problem is only that my wlan fails to start on boot and can be managed by wicked with no problem other than needing a manual "wicked ifup wlan0" command at login. It is undoubtedly caused by the same patch, but not having any experience with openSUSE bug reporting I didn't know how important it is to have an accurate description so I created my own. I figured it could always be closed as a dup if that was appropriate. I'm open to guidance on when to open a new bug or update a similar one.

    As explained in the first bug report, on boot wpa_supplicant fails to start when wickedd attempts to setup interface; when you bring up interface manually, wpa_supplicant is already started so everything works.
