@sams

my bad - LFS (Large File Support) was disabled in busybox config. please try with this initrd.xz
link

it would be an epic fail to release 1.2 final with such a trivial bug.
thanks a lot for reporting.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

@fanthom,
I have found out that the network issue when unpluging the power is some compatibility issue between the switch and Network Manager.
When I plug into Avaya 4524GT switch port, I do not have to connect my laptop power to get the network working normally

Can you please set the Konsole scrolling to Unlimited Scrollback in the 1.2 final release.

weird - is wicd working ok? if yes and if this issue really bothers you then you may want to switch back to wicd (it's in the repo).

@fanthom
I have download wicd as well. But I thought since Network Manager is default then if everything work fine, it would be awesome.

Thanks for the the prompt response and really looking forward to the 1.2 final. :beer:
