[Solved?] sysvinit-core + KDE - no wifi autoconnect

Postby Hallvor » 2018-02-26 07:00

I thought I'd try the good old sysvinit, and installed it with
Code: Select all
apt install sysvinit-core
. I rebooted, and everything looked good until I noticed that the wifi connection was down.

I was able to bring it back up again by selecting it manually in the network manager, but I could not make it autoconnect.

Installing systemd again fixed the issue.

Does anyone else run sysvinit and have wifi autoconnect working? What am I missing?

You may want to check if the fix is in here anywhere. Jessie Smith (distro watch) has taken over sysvinit and a load of updates just hit. Before we blame mr pottering :mrgreen:

I would quite like to troubleshoot this if you don't mind switching back to sysvinit and posting the output of this command:
Code: Select all
ip a

Did you try connecting manually (without NetworkManager)?

EDIT: it's worth noting that the systemd-shim is un-maintained so if it's broken then we will have to fix it ourselves...

It works in Stretch-based MX 17 with sysvinit, but's that's with the gnome widget, not the plasma applet. It did work on my MX 16 KDE 4 respin, though.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Flightgear 2018.2.2, 4.19.5 kernel, wine-staging 4.0~rc1, Pale Moon 28.2.2, Mesa 18.2.6, Midori 7.0

This is really strange. When I wrote the last message, I was at my brother's house. It flat out refused to autoconnect to the wifi. Back home again, it autoconnects. :shock:
