Summary basically says it all: During holidays I updated two of my home
machines to 12.1, but now sometimes the network simply does not come up after
boot. All I find in /var/log/messages is this:

Jan 16 06:31:46 Pangaea dbus[743]: [system] Activation via systemd failed for
unit 'dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service': Unit
dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service failed to load: No such file
or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status
dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service' for details.

If I type "rcnetwork restart" as root, I only get the useless information
"redirecting to systemd" and the net still will not work.

The message "no such file or directory" is useless as well, since it does not
tell me WHICH file or directory is missing.

If I type the reload command, I get:

Pangaea:~ # systemctl status dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service
Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)
Active: inactive (dead)
Pangaea:~ #

I should note that I get exact the same output when the network startup at boot
was successful! So this output is useless as well.

I assume the problems are introduced by systemd, which may be a nice toy
project, but if it is unable to successfully complete such basic tasks as
setting up the network reliably, we are several steps further to Windows.
