Definitely not on this T500. Plug the RJ45 in, green lights appear, no
activity of any sort trying to make a DHCP call. Cannot see any
activity relating to the Ethernet in the journalctl -r listing.
Anything in the logs?
Nothing in the journalctl -r listing as far as I can see when the RJ45
is removed or inserted.
ifup should work with NetworkManager. Have you tried running ifup
The ifup command offloads to nmcli if the NetworkManager service is
running and it bombs out:
Error: Connection activation failed: No suitable device found for this
Terminate the NetworkManager service and the same ifup command offloads
to something else, gets the DHCP going and it works fine.
It should just work.
Sadly on this T500, it doesn't :-(
