    Knoppix 7.4 DNS process acting peculiar.

    .
    I find that IceWeasel 32.0.3 browser in Knoppix 7.4.2 LiveUSBs often appears to
    get confused on doing DNS translations, and needs a wifi disconnect and re-connect
    to get surfing going smoothly again.

    These re-connects go pretty fast, but I don't remember having to keep tweaking
    the system this way with 7.2 and earlier Knoppixes.

    Is anyone else having similar symptoms?
    Any ideas about what might be going on here would be appreciated.

    An experiment in this regard:

    .
    I gather that perhaps enabling NetworkManager-wait-online.service
    may be what's missing in the current systemd set-up for Knoppix.
    See for example:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...er_Wait_Online

    To see how this might be done, see for example:
    http://unix.stackexchange.com/questi...-i-manage-them

    So, as root, I entered:
    Code:
    root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# systemctl list-unit-files | grep wait-online
    and I got:
    NetworkManager-wait-online.service          disabled 
    systemd-networkd-wait-online.service        disabled
    
    Then I entered:
    root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# systemctl enable NetworkManager-wait-online.service
    root@Microknoppix:/home/knoppix# systemctl list-unit-files | grep wait-online
    and then I got:
    NetworkManager-wait-online.service          enabled 
    systemd-networkd-wait-online.service        disabled
    We'll give this a try and see if this helps the situation.

    This experiment fails, unfortunately.

    .
    It turns out the 'NetworkManager' in Knoppix is really knoppix-networkmanager,
    and there is no 'wait-online' aspect in its definition.
    Whether this approach might work with an 'all-up' NetworkManager is moot.

    Wicd is mentioned in some places as an alternative to NetworkManager which
    solves some problems, not clearly the one at hand. That alternative would
    require removal of any current 'NetworkManager' and installation of Wicd as
    its replacement. Whether that might solve the problem at hand is also unknown.

    It may just be the case that systemd and knoppix-networkmanager have this
    small problem which at present either doesn't occur for many other users,
    or occurs at such a rate as not to be a problem worth addressing. Something
    on the order of the disappearance of frame controls allegedly caused by a
    minor incompatibility of Compiz and some aspect of LXDE.
