After enable the testing repositories and updating networkmanager to, SIGTERM hangs for a few seconds, then displays FAILS and moves on. Exact same problem as this

I never had such a problem with networkmanager, either

Additional info:

can remedy the problem by removing networkmanager from rc.conf, but of course, I lose the functionality.

Steps to reproduce:
Shutdown/Restart from KDE start menu
This task depends upon

please provide logs.

I don't seem to notice any noteworthy errors at startup or shutdown. I uploaded the log of NetworkManager starting up, just in case I missed something.

I also noticed that networkmanager can't be SIGTERMed when daemonized, only SIGKILLed. If I don't run it as a daemon, SIGTERM takes care of it fine at shutdown

Please try installing dhclient and adding dhcp=dhclient to the [main] section in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf.

doesn't look like this changed anything, except for some extra dhclient lines

Are you using VPNs?
Comment by Ryan (Kirby) - Wednesday, 15 August 2012, 18:02 GMT

I have the pptp and openvpn plugins installed, but no VPN set up. I had the problem before installing those plugins

I can confirm this bug.
In addition I can provide this information: when NetworkManager started as daemon it does not respond to the SIGTERM signal (therefore it does not shut down while rebooting/shutting down the system), but when I launched it with --no-daemon command line parameter it exited on SIGTERM.

I'm sorry for my English. :-)

Does anybody have already reported this bug upstream? If so I would like to know the name of that report to add mine's because I can't find any networkmanager report related with this issue, thanks!
