    Default Network Manager not working - but Wicked working

    I ran into a problem this morning with Network Manager not working. It was working yesterday (both on LAN and Internet) with ipv6 disabled, with and without a vpn service (where I enabled the vpn yesterday via openVPN). This is a wired connection. I have this same setup on both a laptop and and another desktop and no issue.

    However this morning Network Manager was not working. I re-enabled ipv6 and enabled wicked app (in Yast), rebooted, and I have LAN access and Internet. IMHO that points the finger at Network Manager.

    As a sanity/problem-assessment test, I went to YaST, disabled ipv6 and enabled Network Manager and no LAN nor internet. Re-enabling ipv6 and 'Wicked' app and rebooting, and I again have LAN/Internet (with wicked). I went to an internet 'whats my ip address site' and ipv4 is definitely working with wicked.

    I'm not sure where to start investigating this ... From inxi here is my hardware when booting with NetworkManger (but no LAN/internet) :
    Code:
    Network:   Device-1: Marvell 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet driver: sky2 
               IF: eth1 state: up speed: 100 Mbps duplex: half mac: 00:24:8c:7e:ee:38 
               Device-2: Marvell 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet driver: sky2 
               IF-ID-1: eth0 state: down mac: 00:24:8c:7e:ee:39
    Networkmanager Service when booting with it supposed to be enabled (but no LAN/internet) :
    Code:
    oldcpu@olddarmstadt:~> systemctl status NetworkManager.service
    ● NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
       Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)

    I note a "-no-daemon' above under CGroup but I do not know if that is meaningful.

    Again, booting with NetworkManager supposed to be enabled (but no LAN/internet)
    Code:
    oldcpu@olddarmstadt:~> ip addr

    and some dmesg extracts when booting with Network Manager supposed to be enabled (but no LAN/internet)

    I can see from the dmesg that all is not well with the many "tx timeout" (where the last 3 lines keep repeating).

    I have the same behaviour (NetworkManager not working) with the older 4.12.14-lp151.28.48-default kernel and today's 4.12.14-lp151.28.52-default kernel.

    Again - 'wicked' works, but I would prefer to use NetworkManager with openVPN ....

    My experience is such problems are usually because I did something stupid. My main thought is I somehow messed up the NetworkManager configuration when setting up the openVPN yesterday, but the openVPN (Express VPN) worked fine for many hours (although there was no test reboot after setting it up). Only this morning when booting - did I see the problem. I was NOT using the VPN this morning at all.
