I was very happy to install BT5 but I'm having a network problem which reminds me of my Lucid install.
/etc/init.d/networking start throws up a complaint about using 'start' which is fair enough because I remember problems with Lucid last year and the fix was relatively simple.
I did the following:
service network-manager stop
I removed /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state
service network-manager start
The above procedure does not work with BT5 of course because /var/lib/NetworkManager/ does not exist.
ifconfig will put eth0 up but a connection will not be established.
WICD will 'see' the network but will be unable to make a connection.
It's the first time since the mid 1990's that a simple ethernet connection has failed.
I'm sure there is something obvious I'm missing and I apologise in advance but without networking the operating system is useless.
I'm on a Vaio P by the way, which is a pain as regards poulsbo, but networking has never been a problem.
If anybody has any ideas it would be appreciated.
