what else can I try?

Install glibc from Petr site and see if it resolves your problem. Look
at message #83

Just in case this is the site just get the glibc that corresponds to
your system


Thanks, this seems to solve my problems with the default gateway also (see my post from a few days ago).
But it's only for the ipup method. Networkmanager still does not accept static routes from dhcp. And for my laptop I need this before I switch to 11.1.
Is there a way to see what the computer got from dhcp without using wireshark ?
Is there a way to get Networkmanager to use dhcpcd instead of dhcp-client ?
Sorry for hijacking the thread.
