I would suggest using coredumpctl (maybe add --all) to see previous coredumps. With “ls” you will only see if there is still a real coredump and previous coredumps may be an indication of more systemic problems.
Also, as root. Check the journal to see if networkmanager is behaving odd since boot.
journalctl -u NetworkManager.service
or this to get only the syslog identifier “NetworkManager”
journalctl -b SYSLOG_IDENTIFIER=NetworkManager
compare with last boot (or last working boot=number)
journalctl -b 1 SYSLOG_IDENTIFIER=NetworkManager
journalctl -b 2 SYSLOG_IDENTIFIER=NetworkManager
When you find something weird. Have a look around for odd things with a more broder journalctl statement and around that point in time:
Unfortunately, the graphic information is not enough. It lacks information for the entire session.
You are not seeing all things in the system log as you should run the journalctl command as root (with sudo). There is user specific journal log but in this case it doesn’t help as NetworkManager is logged in system journal.
Please run this and paste the output to paste.opensuse.org. Make it last at least 1 month as other may need to have a look. It’s the Remove after 1 month field in the bottom right corner.
marel, you will get the answer to your question if you read the title of this thread.
Tumbleweed update caused the modem to be unable to connect via usb. I am unpleasantly surprised by the unprofessionalism of OpenSuse maintainers who worked on the service pack. I am now looking for a way to solve a ridiculous problem that is the fault of the OpenSuse programming team.
Perhaps you can give me some good advice on how to do this optimally? I’m sure many Tumbleweed users are without internet.
I’m not sure if you want advice from others since you’re directing your question to one person.
Is the only way to connect to your phone via USB? Can you put it in “WIFI hotspot mode”? Or is the WIFI also broken on your computer?
Download the snapshot. Install it on a USB stick. Copy all rpms from x86_64/ and noarch/ to /var/cache/zypper/RPMS/, which is the directory zypper dup --download-only saves rpms to . Start zypper dup. This is just a suggestion. I’ve never done it myself and it’s up to you to decide if you want to try it.
Aggplanta, I’m happy for any advice to help me find a solution to a silly situation I owe to the Tumbleweed team. And, believe me, I’m grateful for that advice. But I would like to get a solution that has been proven correct by real experience.
Unfortunately, this computer does not use WiFi. I connected to the internet via USB modem on this host, and that was enough for me. It never occurred to me that today’s ridiculous case is possible.
Aggplanta, I consider several similar posts on this forum to be the kind of sign that needs attention. The lack of bug reports on bugzilla only tells me that people don’t have the time. You can see that one Tumbleweed user chose to switch to debian instead of a long discussion. And I can probably understand that person’s emotions and frustration. .
I really have no words in the context of what happened. This case dropped the reputation of the distribution and the OpenSuse maintainer team. This is my subjective assessment, and the forum moderator can remove my words if he wants.
