It seems with today's updates, now it's almost impossible to connect to
On login, the network manager widget just says 'waiting for authentication'.
Which nothing seems to ask for, so it just sits.
opening the plasma, clicking on the desired access point, I get many cycles of
network manager crashing, and the panel apparently crashing and restarting.
After randomly screwing around, eventually it somehow connects.
I have not uploaded the crash dump as it's too large.
So it looks like a whole bunch of bugs here. Why is it 'waiting for
authentication'? This is not a new setup and has worked fine for years.
Of course, NM shouldn't be crashing. But that seems to me to be yet another
bug. It looks to me that nm crashed only after fiddling around, and after it
already was hung with 'waiting for auth...'.
