Re: sometimes network is down after boot

The same thing happens to my new installed chimaera. Over weeks every thing works fine, but one day there was no network after login to xfce. For the 1st time this happens I just ignore it. The 2nd time I look to /var/log/syslog:

Jun 24 09:51:58 ... NetworkManager ... dhcp4 (eth0): request timed out
...
Jun 24 09:52:04 ... NetworkManager ... dhcp6 (eth0): request timed out

BTW: I liked it very much not using NetworkManager since devuan/jessie 32bit, but I understand the case against wicd:

Wicd is no longer available in Devuan 4 Chimaera having been removed
from Debian Bullseye because of it's dependency on python2 which is now
obsolete. (from chimeara release notes)

Just before jumping into some rabbit holes there may be a thread [DNG] resolv.conf to read. But for short the following command was helpful to meroot:

echo resolvconf=NO > /etc/resolvconf.conf

Hm, does not not a solution noted during the thread. Being verbose I want to cite
Alessandro Vesely

Some of that arcane is unveiled in Debian wiki:

These packages include various configuration files for other
packages (such as isc-dhcp-client). For example, resolvconf
includes a file which modifies the make_resolv_conf shell
function used by dhclient-script(8).
https://wiki.debian.org/resolv.conf#Con … resolvconf

Thanks a lot to Ale! Here is the note to openresolv:

If openresolv is installed, you can tell it to do nothing
whenever some daemon tries to modify resolv.conf, by putting
resolvconf=NO in the /etc/resolvconf.conf file. (Note: this
is not the /etc/resolv.conf file!)

This is not the end of the story: I have found a bad hack with a good side effect to thunar: initial startup is fasten by twenty times:

time thunar .

real    0m20,348s
user   0m0,005s
sys     0m0,011s

Now I'm looking for a place to discuss this.
