Perhaps everyone knows this, but its not something I have come across before.
I recently built a fedora 13 server without any of the X / Gnome / KDE parts as I only want command line on it – this is relativly normal for what I do, however I normally use kickstart scripts, but as it was my first jaunt into 13 I didnt.
Its common for me to set up interface aliases as I use apache and a number of sites with SSL which requires independant IP addresses.
Normally I create a interface aliase file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts to the figure of ifcfg-eth0:0 etc..
Doing this in FC13 and then trying to bring the interface up threw up the following error
Bringing up interface eth0: ** (process:3898): WARNING **: fetch_connections_done: error fetching user connections: (2) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings was not provided by any .service files.
As I mentioned I have configured aliases lots so was confused as to exactly what was causing my problem – however the clue was in the error message – as it normally is..
The NetworkManager service was running which I dont use and this was preventing my alias’s from working properly. So a quick pkill -9 NetworkManager and then removing it from rc3.d to stop it starting up again fixed all my issues.
I guess thats what happens when you script build all the time – you forget these little bits 🙂
