I have seen two updates to network-manager in the last two or three days.  Suddenly, my LXQt laptop with 2017 siduction on it has no wireless interface.

Anyone else seeing a problem?

Thanks!

I don't know when or how connman was removed. When I connected the laptop to an ethernet cable, and looked for network-manager and connman, I found that neither one was installed. I know that I set up the wireless interface with connman several years ago, so I reinstalled connman. When I did that, the wireless interface was immediately recognized, and the internet connection is good.

So apparently, a recent update removed connman.   :-X

Hi dibl

I haven't upgraded my EEEpc (which runs LXqt) in a couple of days, and still have wifi and connman. When I run apt update and apt full-upgrade nothing is removed (I'm not going any further till this is resolved). There is a library that is updated named "libnm0" that is related to network manager, I don't know if this is the cause of the problem, but, there doesn't seem to be anything else on the update list that would affect network manager.

You still have a functional EEEpc?  :o

@Devil, thanks -- I should look into those. This old Dell Inspiron laptop has been so reliable, I forget that it's running sid sometimes. It has been running siduction trouble-free for years.

Is there a reason you're using a generic video driver (and running display at non-native resolution)?

No. Apparently that is how it was configured during installation. I have never adjusted it since it was installed.

Upon looking into it, I found I had "nomodeset" in the kernel boot parameters. I also have "selinux=0". That reminded me that a couple years ago a new kernel caused booting to hang, and I had to play with the boot parameters to get past that issue. Maybe "nomodeset" was part of the solution at that time, but today I removed it and it is loading the modesetting module and using the higher resolution, so thanks for that @seasons!
