    Network Manager Error Messages When Shutting Down


    I'm not entirely sure that I am posting this in the right place, but I couldn't really make it fit anywhere else.

    This is a brief how-to that will show you how to stop those annoying error messages that Network Manager can throw up when your PC shuts down.

    This feels slightly hackish in the good way and has worked fine for me. So far I have experienced no ill effects from doing this but as with all advice found on the Internet you follow it at your own risk

    Open a terminal
    cd /etc/init.d
    sudo gedit nwm (this should create a new file called nwm)
    Add the following into the file
    Code:
    #! /bin/sh
    #	Kill all Network Managers.
    #	Should hopefully stop those annoying error messages
    killall NetworkManager
    exit 0
    Save the file and exit gedit

    cd ../rc6.d
    sudo ln -s ../init.d/nwm K00nwn

    When your computer enters runlevel 6 (shutting down or preparing to reboot) your new script should be the first thing that is run.

    Well Linux Tutorials, HOWTO's & Reference Material - Linux Forums is the right place.

    hmm... my network manager never threw a error.
    can I know what kind of error is throws while rebooting or shutdown?
    Never make any misteaks.

    I didn't think it was good enough to qualify as an "official" how to or tutorial. Maybe a mod will do the honor

    There are a whole stream of error messages, so many that the shutdown process takes an awful lot longer than it needs to. I have seen this on Ubuntu and Mint and know that it also affects Sabayon and Arch among others.
