When I installed Frugalware, way back in August, I mentioned that the network Manager wasn’t starting up automatically. Starting it manually is easy enough, but it’s something that really should be starting up automatically.
Finally, after spending way too much time reading up on systemd, I have gotten around to doing this. Inevitably, the command to achieve automatic starting of the network manager is ridiculously simple:
# systemctl enable NetworkManager.service
… but I’m noting this here so I have something to refer back to for next time.
