    Hi,

    Network Manager is finicky and doesn't work on every Linux machine. Perhaps you could download WICD and install that instead of Network Manager. However, make sure that you have completely deleted the previous manager, before installing WICD.

    I think that you will find WICD much friendlier, ans easier to work with.

    Good Luck!

    Hello

    I believe the Arch wiki pages on networkmanager and wicd are about as good as any:

    .so files are compiled, so what you are seeing are the random bytes that make up the library. What are you trying to do?

    New networkmanager and network-manager-applet packages went into the Arch repos yesterday, so maybe installing them, or totally removing your current packages and any configs, then installing the new packages will fix things for you.
