connman & NFS

Over the past couple of weeks, connman has been updated twice and in each instance it breaks my BBB over NFS.

Here is what happens:

In my /lib/systemd/system/connman.service, I have a line:

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/connman -n -I eth0 // Prevent connman from managing eth0

which the upgrade changes to:

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/connman -n

and that breaks my apt-get upgrade while updating connman because I see:

nfs: server not responding, still trying

My only option is to cycle the BBB power and then issue the following command to complete the connman installation:

dpkg —configure -a

Now I am able to boot, but DNS won’t work (connman isn’t managing eth0)

To fix this, I have to delete


and then create a file


which /etc/resolv.conf is linked to.

Is there a better way to deal with this issue?


Ah crap, that's me... Sorry about that..

Yeah, i need to detect eth0 is in connman.service and not remove it.
Before i even think about pushing the next connman update..

We had a bug in connman where the wifi softap was no longer coming up..


Thanks Robert.
