Until "recently" all that wasn't a big problem, because one was easily able to simply not install NM, but nowadays more and more packages start to depend on it (of those I know, most notably gnome-core) or at least use it's functionality to determine whether one is online or not.
I don’t use NM, but I have it installed (you mentioned the dependencies). I have a „exit 0” in the init script, so NM won’t be started. I don’t see any problems with other applications (e.g. Pidgin).
So try it, and if it works for you, you can ignore NM. Stephan -- | Stephan Seitz E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org | | Public Keys: http://fsing.rootsland.net/~stse/keys.html |
