    Hello,
    I’ve installed antiX 19, and it works nice, but I have a specific problem: connman doesn’t work with openvpn out of the box.
    I have configuration scripts for openvpn, which worked with ceni, in previous version antiX 17. Now I cannot connect via VPN.
    Since connman doesn’t work out of the box with openvpn, but needs some configuration files in /var/lib/connman-vpn, which I’m unable to write, I wish to continue to use ceni, but in the release anouncement of antiX 19 it says that ceni is in conflict with connman, so if I install ceni, then possibly I get error messages from connman, and may not be able to connect. If I unistall connman before, I won’t be able to connect to the internet to download ceni. What should I do?
    Is it OK if I install ceni, then uninstall connman and then try to configure my connections with ceni?

    Install ceni first and set it up. After removing connman, you probably need to symlink /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf to /etc/resolv.conf

    Hi anticapitalista,
    I tried what you said, but could not connect.
    But today I found out what happened.
    You wrote exactly what is in the quote above.
    But what you meant was (just the commands):
    symlink /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf to /etc/resolv.conf
    There is a “.” missing in your suggestion, and that makes all the difference 🙂
    Anyway, now it’s OK, and thanks.

    I’ll fix my typo – glad it works for you.

    Can you explain to a numpty like me how I make this systemlink please. I’m having no luck with connman so I installed ceni, uninstalled connman and ceni sees my wireless adapter as eth1 not wlan. A scan shows WiFi networks but fails to connect. Help please.

    hi terrybull,

    that would be the ln command to make links.

    ln -s /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf to /etc/resolv.conf

    would make the symlink from /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf to /etc/resolv.conf
    It will have to be run as a sudo command or from root terminal.

    depends on the surrounding crowd ?!

    I get the result
    ln: target ‘/etc/resolv.conf’ is not a directory.

    hi terrybull,

    You may have to put a “f” after the “-s” like:

    ln -sf /etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf to /etc/resolv.conf

    to force the link.

    just to double check …… open the “/etc” directory in the file manager and
    make sure the link isn’t already there. If it is it will have an arrow in the icon.
