Getting NetworkManager/HA IP settings to work properly on a supervised 64 bit Raspberry Pi OS install

Hey y’all! :smiley:

The setup

I’ve got a Raspberry Pi 4 running the latest beta 64 bit version of Raspberry Pi OS Lite taken from the official servers, with HomeAssistant Supervised running on top as per this community guide.

The issue

It works perfectly overall and doesn’t even show the unsupported warning if that matters, but it’s my assumption that NetworkManager conflicts with default RaspiOS settings or something along these lines because the IP address related settings in HA’s UI don’t work, and nmcli shows the eth/wlan interfaces as unavailable.

Extra info

The only network related setting that’s changed from default as far as I’m aware is /etc/wpa_supplicant, which contains the following and was necessary for wifi to work with ssh since I run it headless and with no readily available ethernet cable:

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev


The files mentioned here look exactly the same bar the uuid as well.

I do realize this is pretty niche and that I’m fully responsible for choosing to do it this way but searching didn’t turn up much I can make sense of so I’d appreciate some pointers if someone’s got any idea how to get it working or has been in a similar spot.

If you’re still with me, thanks a lot for reading! :slight_smile:

Exactly the same setup on 64-bit debian-based Raspberry Pi OS Lite on rpi4b. Everything working except that eth0 and wlan0 are unavailable in NetworkManager. I wouldn’t care except some add ons rely on NetworkManager handling them.

Yup, haven’t personally needed any add-on like that so ended up just sucking it up and leaving it as it was. Will make sure to update this if I ever stumble upon a fix or any info.
