How to update NetworkManager?

Post#1 by fulalas » 13 Feb 2017, 00:46

We all know that NetworkManager has been updated and now Slackware has a build of the 1.6 version: http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/ ... 6_64-1.txz

I tried to create a xzm module from it, but after rebooting, my network doesn't work. Inside console if you type 'nmcli' you can see a message telling that a plugin is missing. Any idea?

BTW, anyone wondering about nm-applet (NetworkManager GUI), the new version is working out of the box: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=6661

Thanks, brokenman! Unfortunately I don't know anything about NetworkManager plugins. And also I thought that just simply creating a xzm module it would overwrite the old NetworkManager inside 001 during the boot. :(
