Just moved back to openSUSE 11.0 last night (tried that whole Gentoo thing, for a few weeks, but was too impatient for the compile times).
Installed from the DVD. As soon as the installer was done and a user (me) logged in, my wireless worked (as expected). So I go through and tell YaST to fetch the updates. If it matters, immediately afterwards I hooked up to the XOrg:X11 and Packman repositories and updated all that stuff as well.
Anyway, rebooted, now Network Manager (or at least KNetworkManager) is more or less useless. The globe turns green when I plug into the wired network, but if I right click on it, I get the following:
Deactivate Connection >
If I click New Connection, absolutely nothing happens. Nothing.
Clicking Deactivate Connection only gives the option for switching to offline mode.
Going to Edit Connections shows the wifi setup from last night (my home network), but, once in there, if I tell it to connect to said saved connection, nothing happens.
For the past year or so, I’m used to having the network Just Work on this thing, and this is the only distro I’ve used with NetworkManager 0.7*, so I’m at a bit of a loss. Any help is appreciated.

(yes, the wifi switch is on and has been)
Let me know what other information you need.
Oh, and, for the record, I didn’t throw this in the “Wireless” category since the applet won’t let me connect/disconnect from the wired network. Sometimes it connects by itself, sometimes I need to do “#ifconfig eth0 up”.
