Re: Is Network-Manager freezing my system?

... Yesterday, my
system froze twice, i.e. became completely unresponsive, the caps lock
LED flashing, as it does on this machine when it's frozen. (A quick
Google search suggests that's a sign of kernel panic.) The only
remedy is to hold down the power button until it powers down. The
reason I suspect Network-Manager is twofold: (1) the freeze only
happened when I had the machine hard-wired to my network, and (2)
syslog showed lots of wlan0 activity - trying to connect, being denied
a DHCP address - just before the freeze occurs. Has anyone else had a
similar experience? I don't want to file a bug report against
Network-Manager unless I'm pretty sure it's the culprit.
it was happening to me with an atheros chip and ath5k module. Removing
NetworkManager in favor of WICD solved the issue, so I am pretty sure it
was the trouble maker. ...
I have had the same problem.
Searched Synaptic but could not find the WICD package in Lenny.
