    Networkmanager is not running...

    I was upgrading to 9.10 when I restarted my computer... When I got back on it's only partially installed . The Internet isn't working and the network manager says "networkmanager is not running..." so now I can't finish the upgrade. When I type nm-applet into terminal it says that network manager is already taken. Error 1387. Note: I have a wired connection.

    That sounds... inconvenient.
    Have you tried configuring the interface via /etc/network/interfaces?

    all it says is
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    i want the interface eth1 to work (i think)

    That's what the file would look like for normal Network Manager-ed system. No guarantees for success, but using your preferred editor, either
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
    or
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
    and add the following:
    Code:
    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet dhcp
    Save the file and reboot - hope for the best!

    There is a setting in the source (in my Jaunty network-manager) that does not agree with the /etc/init.d/NetworkManager startup script.

    My loaded version is network-manager_0.7.1~rc4.1.cf199a964-0ubuntu2.deb

    NetworkManager.c, line 55 reads:

    #define NM_DEFAULT_PID_FILE LOCALSTATEDIR"/run/NetworkManager.pid"

    That puts the NetworkManager.pid file in /var/run

    /etc/init.d/NetworkManager, line 28 reads

    PIDDIR=${localstatedir}/run/NetworkManager

    That puts the NetworkManager.pid file in /var/run/NetworkManager

    To fix replace line 28 in /etc/init.d/NetworkManager with:

    PIDDIR=${localstatedir}/run

    Now it starts for me because the package can find the .pid file

    Hope it works for you.
