What do the messages listed below, particularly the last two, which
are listed in boot.log, mean relative to ethernet and wifi network
devices (I am assuming a wireless mouse has no impact on this situation)
that are configured in Network Manager to not be connected to at boot
time and definitions that are?
Starting Network Manager...
[ OK ] Started Network Manager.
Starting Network Manager Wait Online...
Starting Network Manager Script Dispatcher Service...
[ OK ] Started Network Manager Script Dispatcher Service.
[ OK ] Started Network Manager Wait Online.
Starting LSB: Bring up/down networking...
[ OK ] Started LSB: Bring up/down networking.
[ OK ] Reached target Network.
[ OK ] Reached target Network is Online.
I am particularly interested in whether the last two are produced
because the checking process successfully found usable devices that
could be used for the network, as opposed to devices that Network
Manager has been told to connect to at boot, and if it is the latter
option how can the network be online when dkms has not finished
compiling and installing into the kernel the driver for the only device
that Network Manager has been told to connect to boot. I am assuming
that the pci wireless device that functions with an inbuilt kernel
module (ATH9K) is not being network activated when there isn't a
definition for that device in Network Manager.
