[SOLVED] Connman breaks internet connection?

Hi forum,

After upgrading 2 desktop pc's from Beowulf to Chimaera internet was working. Both connect to the same wireless hotspot which has wpa2 security. Looking for a replacement for wicd I installed connman on desktop 1. This appeared to have broken the internet connection. I uninstalled connman but the internet connection was not restored, but Tor browser works.

On both pc's interfaces in etc/network/interfaces contain this:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

On desktop 2 there is internet system-wide, desktop 1 no internet and no internet via Tor browser.

On desktop 2 I tried in interfaces

auto lo
auto wlan0 inet dhcp
	wpa-essid HOTSPOT	
	wpa-psk PASSWORD

This restores internet via Tor browser but not system-wide.

What am i missing?

Other than that happy Chimaera boots faster and applications open faster and are more responsive.

Re: [SOLVED] Connman breaks internet connection?

resolv.conf was empty, putting a nameserver brought back the internet connection.

EDIT: Well, partly solved. After reboot resolv.conf is gone, placing a nameserver in the resolv.conf file in /etc brings back internet.
