Hi guys:

I'm having problems with ”Share to other computers” from the NetworkManager, pretty similar to what I used to have with Taranis some time ago but now dnsmasq-base is already installed by default, so I don't think is the same problem:

https://trisquel.info/es/forum/”share-other-computers”-networkmanager

Again, this option is located in the “Ipv4 Setting” tap section while you are editing a connection where it says “Method”. I use this very often to share my Internet connection from my wireless card with a another computer through the Ethernet using a cross cable.

It works for a couple of seconds and then NetworkManager starts giving system messages saying "connection establish", then "connection lost" and then "connection establish" and so on.

I'll see if I can find NetworkManager log and see if there is something there, see you later guys.

this is what I found in the log by running the following command:

grep -i networkmanager /var/log/syslog | tail -n2

May 16 14:26:52 a9da3777f4a1 NetworkManager[930]: Auto-activating connection 'Wired connection 1'.
May 16 14:26:52 a9da3777f4a1 NetworkManager[930]: Connection 'Wired connection 1' auto-activation failed: (2) Device not managed by NetworkManager or unavailable

It doesn't seem to give any useful information. I'll try disabling the auto-activation option and see if that helps.

For this and many other reasons I loved GNU/Linux.

Ok so I run this command again without "tail -n2" so that I could get the entire log, and this is what catch my attention:

grep -i networkmanager /var/log/syslog

May 16 14:53:09 a9da3777f4a1 NetworkManager[930]: <warn> dnsmasq exited with error: Network access problem (address in use; permissions; etc) (2)

That information was very useful. I used my favourite Web Search Engine and i found the following threat:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/63059/why-is-my-ethernet-connection-connecting-and-disconnecting-repeatedly

All you got to do to solve it is ignoring IPv6 and killing any dnsmasq process. You can do this by doing the following:

Right click on NetworkManager chose "Edit Connections..." double click on the Wired connection 1 go to the "IPv6 Settings" Tap and chose "Ignore" where it says Method.

Then run "sudo killall dnsmasq" on terminal and thats it.

I may field a bug report for Brigantia. Thank you all.
