I downloaded the live version of the new release today. When I opened the network configuration from the panel a wired connection for eth0 was showing which is normal. I need to set up a DSL connection so I proceeded to this option, entered the details but they were not saved. I tried to repeat the process and returned this error:
"The Name Org.Freedesktop.NetworkManagerSystemSettings was not provided by any .service files"
After this the wired connection entry had also disappeared.
No matter I thought, I'll connect with my broadband modem instead and sort out a solution online. Plugged in the MD300 and nothing, the Mobile Broadband settings option remained greyed out.
Now with Pardus 2010 both these worked just fine.
What is it with the KDE network manager that only swapping to Gnome seems to fix?
