I have installed Arch+xfce in a fairly old (32bits, 512MB RAM) laptop computer. I could not get my wifi working with wicd, but Network Manager worked like a charm until I tried to install gvfs (which also installs gcr-3.18.0-1 libatasmart-0.19-3 libbluray-0.9.2-1 libcddb-1.3.2-4 libcdio-0.93-3 libcdio-paranoia-10.2+0.93+1-1 udisks2-2.1.6-1 gvfs-1.26.2-1).
After that install, Network manager started to refuse to connect to wifi. "systemctl status NetworkManager" showed that when connecting to a secured wifi, NetworkManager was trying to do it without security, so it was rejected. When trying to connect to an unsecured wifi, the error was of wpa supplicant timeout. This was not solved by rebooting.
After uninstalling gvfs with its dependencies, NetworkManager started working again. Any idea on how can I install gvfs while keeping NetworkManager working?
Here are some outputs:

Try manually editing your password for wireless-network, by right clicking on the icons of network manager.
Arch is home!

After having other problems, I run a memtest and found some errors. I guess this caused also this problem.
