    I am a newer openSuSE user with a boot issue


    When i do a fast load i recieve an error stating that my Systemctl NetworkManager.service fails to load and upon doing some research i found that this is a common error with the new distro and that there are many possible solutions to this problem however all the solutions require seem rather risky for a newbie (although veteran computer user in general). What would the community suggest as the best solution to this problem.

    Also i tried to create a symbolic link between the /bin and /usr/bin directory and that failed

    Sorry, I'm assuming you just installed this distro. My advice is to find a distro that works correctly 'out of the box' for new users.

    Oh that is perfectly OK. However i installed the distro about a month ago and i have put work into customizing somewhat to my liking and transferring all my data from my now deleted windows partition. So i am looking for more of a fix solution than a start over solution even if it means i have to get my hands dirty .

    What do you mean by "fast load". Is there any real consequence or just a harmless error/warning message? Is network manager in fact, started and working?

    Excuse me a fast boot the first line printed to my system after choosing which O/S i want to load is "doing fast boot" followed by a listing of the system loading the kernel from the hard drive then services and drive mounting etc. That as the problem i do not know if there is a real consequence however after i log into my system and i open up a terminal and execute the command systemctl start NetworkManager.service i recieve a failure message saying that it can not start. However i am able to access the network and the internet.

    NetworkManager.service should be started on boot. Try this command next time you reboot.

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/network status
    If it isn't started then try
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/network restart
    please post the exact, if any, error messages.

    EDIT: Use su or sudo, whichever your system uses

    How can i set my system to require me to authorize each step of the boot process because i can not read and comprehend the error message fast enough except for the big red lettered failed because my system boots too fast
