[linux57] LAN Ethernet interface call connection after upgrade to linux57 BUT there is no cable here

linux57 "stable"

Issue

LAN Ethernet call connection when cable is not connected.

02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 15)
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [1043:200f]
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16

        Kernel driver in use: r8169

Under 5.6.x all is fine and LAN do not freak out like this.
Solution?
:thinking:

just wait few more point release to hope to have a fix. and stay on 5.6 till then.. or 5.4

thank you

For KDE, deleting both connections work after creating a new one. For Cinnamon and Gnome, network manager displays them permanently. For the one that does not exist, disable connect automatically is a quick fix.

Otherwise, L57 runs Ok and this bug is present in Manjaro only.

Simply restricting the connection to the correct device should work as well on KDE.
