OS13.2 RC1: Network manager not running
(too old to reply)

I just installed OS13.2 RC1 in a virtualbox.

The network-manager icon is visible in the System tray with a red x next to
it. When I hover over the icon it says "NetworkManager not running". When I
click on the icon I see that no connection is configured.

But I am connected and ifconfig reports:

enp0s3 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:94:95:0D
inet addr:10.0.2.15 Bcast:10.0.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::a00:27ff:fe94:950d/64 Scope:Link

RX bytes:147902 (144.4 Kb) TX bytes:51504 (50.2 Kb)

If I go in Yast2 > Services Manager I see that NetworkManager is
disabled/inactive. The attempt to enable/activate seems to fail with:

Could not enable NetworkManager: NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service: enabled)
Active: inactive (dead)

However after a reboot Network Manager is active and working as expected.

Hope this doesn't mean 13.2 will come with broken networking on first
boot like 13.1 did. After the reboot does it come up every time on
subsequent boots?

I recall a similar issue with the purge-kernels service which reported
itself as loaded but inactive.

- red x on network-manager icon : some boots it appears . . . other
times does not.
