Hi! I'm running Fedora 19. Two problems:

  1. I have to manually start NetworkManager via: sudo NetworkManager It never auto-starts. How can I make it auto-start at boot?

  2. Whenever I manually start NetworkManager, there's the good chance the computer will freeze for about 5 seconds, then show a white/black screen and only leave me to switch it off / take out the battery and boot again. I don't know where to look for what the error might be at all.

If you have to manually start NetworkManager, use this command: systemctl start NetworkManager

To enable it to start on subsequent boots, use the command systemctl enable NetworkManager - although I would wait until we find the cause of the freeze before doing so.

The first thing to do when troubleshooring is to update the system. Make sure that your packages are up to date.

To view logs from the previous boot, and see what was recorded before the lock, use the command journalctl -b -1. Update your question with anything relevant you find there.
