I got strange issue with networkmanager, after login with entrance when Network Manager connects successfuly with wireless access point then E17 cannot open any program and complains it cannot connect to the current display.

When I kill the X and relogin again, everything works fine.

Is there any way to fix this glitch?.

cheers

(hope you would have resolved it by now from the networkmanager faq / gentoo wiki.) its a standard issue that networkmanager changes hostname when it connects and security alarm :). look into the file /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf and give your hostname there. example :
Code:
# /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf
send host-name "asdf" ;
supersede host-name "asdf" ;

yes I got the /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf correctly configured, I suspect that it have something to do with gnome-keyring or session manager but I am clueless of how to fix it.

Damn, the solution is so simple....

I need to get /etc/conf.d/hostname to match the /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf entry in the hostname.

Code:
/etc/conf.d/hostname
# Set to the hostname of this machine
hostname="XXX"

Code:
/etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf
# /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf
send host-name "XXX" ;
supersede host-name "XXX" ;
