I have a beaglebone black. In order to allow me to access the web server on it, it creates a virtual network over USB. Whenever this gets started, "USB Ethernet" appears in the menu on the upper right (I don't know what its called. That menu that has the shutdown and reboot buttons, internet stuff, etc.), and then NetworkManager crashes.

I have no idea how to find out why this is happening or how to fix it. Can someone give me some pointers?

Once the NetworkManager has crashed, issue the command dmesg in a terminal and look for any errors.

Update the question with the output of journalctl -f -u NetworkManager while you plug in the device, it will be more relevant.
