- Attempting to install
networkmanagerthrough pacman from MA chroot doesn’t work.
- NetworkManager TUI which opens from MA when I don’t have ethernet connected detects my printer (which is close by and doesn’t have a password, yes ik that’s horrible) but no secure networks such as my home WiFi router (which is a room and 2 walls away).
I tried using MA for making an installation on an old-ish PC lying around in my home. An oddity I noticed first-off was that the Windows 10 installation on it beforehand was able to interface properly with both ethernet and external WiFi adapter (albeit with consistent problems on the adapter, probably owing to bad hardware).
I found that MA was able to properly use ethernet all by itself, and the installation went smoothly for the most part, except that when I booted the installation, neither ethernet nor wlan were detected, and
inxi wasn’t installed! I entered system recovery mode and installed
inxi by plugging in ethernet, but once I disconnected it and plugged in another WiFi adapter lying around (which flashed green while ethernet was connected), I found that it wasn’t working.
I’ve sifted through some of the existing content on the forums involving detailed departures into building git repos from source.
Currently on my main pc, so
inxi log is not trivially available. More info upon request.
