Agreed, besides, dhcpcd-gtk is lighter and simpler.
all you need to do is have dhcpcd, wpa_supplicant services added to rc-update and then run dhcpcd-ui (need it installed) and you should be able to get a list of connections by clicking on the icon.
the way to run dhcpcd-ui is to type dhcpcd-gtk into terminal though.
Does this have anything to do with internet connection sharing?
Also, connecting with NM is actually easier than what you've described: NM calls dhcpcd and wpa_supplicant, so those two services don't need to be started automatically. Only NM needs to be added to a runlevel.
Well, it might be, but I am not sure whether it will be in the repos forever, it is poetteringware.
rc-update add dhcpcd
rc-update add wpa_supplicant
then reboot or rc-service wpa_supplicant start
rc-service dhcpcd restart
Yes its a slower method and kind of annoying, but you could do doas su
then type these commands in to make it faster.
I have done this many, many times (i have had to reinstall sometimes due to being on testing... )
Also it is a lighter on resources service. I am not trying to lecture just to prepare you...
I am certain networkmanager will be removed in the future.
