    Default Wifi not starting on boot

    Beginning a couple of days ago when this computer boots there is a long delay (relatively -- it use to take 14 sec total) and when it does allow me to login I find there is no wifi network. Running "ifup wlan0" as root does bring it up.

    As far as I am aware I changed nothing explicitly but did do "zypper up" as usual for me.

    I did boot once with the text showing rater than the graphic and the l was in starting wicked managed service, but I have been unable to find a log file which relates.

    Any pointers appreciates.

    First, check YaST - System - Servicesmanager for how wicked is configured. I should autostart at boot.

    I looked and all the wicked services except wickedd are marked "at boot", wickedd being marked manual

    Also wpa_supplicant is manual.

    If it makesany difference I am not running gnome, KDE or any similar desktop system

    So I just wait for the gurus to fix? Systems is way outside my comfort zone.

    As a quick and dirty fix, change from Wicked to Network Manager – at least until the Wicked issue mentioned in the Bug Report has been resolved …

    Why do you not try to downgrade the wpa_supplicant page?

    See How do I downgrade a package? for guidance.
