I want to start using nmcli instead of wpa_cli to manage my networking.

On my current setup with wpa_cli, I have the following services enabled:

systemd-networkd

systemd-resolved

wpa_supplicant.service

wpa_supplicant@wlp4s1

I want to enable the NetworkManager services - but doing so, which of the above services should I disable?

I can't seem to find the relationship between the NetworkManager service, and the services listed above. Does NetworkManager rely on systemd-networkd, or wpa_supplicant, etc?

When I start the NetworkManager services, I am able to connect just fine like so:

nmcli dev wifi connect my-ssid password "mypassword"

But should I keep the services listed above enabled?

(I am running Archlinux, if that matters)
