Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

Hi,

when I switch to one of the virtual consoles with Ctrl+Alt+F1-6 I get this error:

[ 214.754966] iwlagn 0000:10:00.0: ACTIVATE a non DRIVER active station id 0 addr 00:22:6b:e5:b2:73

When I go back to tty7, the network manager isn't connected and after few seconds the connection come back.

It doesn't happen with ethernet connection, I tried.

Bye

I'm looking at this right now and trying to reproduce the issue. I'm totally unable to reproduce it on an installed system, so for now I'll say it's specific to the live session, I will get this tested on various systems.

Reassigned to casper on the grounds that you're fixing this in casper and I didn't see a sign of a network-manager component of this bug. If this is wrong, please create an additional network-manager task.
