I'm very new to Arch (I've been a SuSE dude before this...). I'm using a Sony Vaio FS VGN series.
So far, I've followed instructions, some intuition, and gotten things installed.
I have eth0 @ eth1 as the ipw2200 & e100 devices, respectively (although they sometimes switch).
ifwconfig -a shows both devices as working.
Using the normal ifconfig I get an ip address on the wired line. Once configuring NetworkManager, it loads fine, I can't find any error messages. The KNetworkManager applet states "No network device found."
In rc.conf (relevant parts):
lo="lo 127.0.0.1" eth0="dhcp" eth1="dhcp" INTERFACES=(lo eth0 !eth1) DAEMONS=(syslog-ng 915resolution !hotplug !pcmcia network dhcdbd networkmanager netfs crond portmap)
I honesly don't know whwere else to look. Just let me know what other information I need to post to get this to work.[/code]
I got this solved now! I'm quite proud of myself.
Turns out the networkmanager is also reliant on the 'hal' service. I added hal to my daemons line in rc.conf (before dhcdbd) and all is well.
