When I rebooted Tumbleweed after updating to
snapshot 20200425 (which
included kernel 5.6.6), the Network Manager showed no active wireless
network connection (though it listed the router I connect to), and when
I tried to reconnect I was requested (by the policy kit security
manager?) to enter the root password, but when I did, nothing happened.
I have seen no reports of a similar problem. Only after booting a
previous snapshot with kernel 5.6.4 was the network available again.
When I run `zypper dup' with this snapshot it wants to install
everything from snapshot 20200425 and later. What can I do to restore
network access on current tw?
I'd first tets if this is really the kernel causing the problem. This
is quite easy, as you can keep multiple kernels on your system.
for this, set in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf:
multiversion = provides:multiversion(kernel)
multiversion.kernels = latest,latest-1,running
Then zypper dup and pick the old kernel from the grub boot menu. Like
this you would have snapshot 0425, running on the older kernel.
If this works, you can file a bug against the kernel for regressing on
your wireless chip.
In fact, I already do have 5.6.4 available under snapshot 0425 (I
somehow forgot about that and immediately tried an earlier snapshot),
and booting with it does get the wifi connection, so this does appear to
be a regression in 5.6.6. Is bugzilla.opensuse.org
the right address to
file a bug against the kernel?
