Well ok... but that's what one needs to set when one at least somehow want's to use both NM and ifupdown. Or did I understand wrong that NM ignores any interfaces mentioned in /e/n/i, if managed=false? > What follows is a lot of misconceptions and biased views and you > conclude with "Will we continue to live with the current disease?". Well I guess by reporting tickets against the package and upstream, with things that IMHO should work differently and ideas for enhancement I made clear enough that I don't simply hate it or so, but want to improve it.. If you, as maintainer, feel/felt offended, than I'm really sorry and apologize,... that wasn't my intention; if it were I would have disabled NM at my system, saved some hours of writing ideas for improvements, and started lobbying around at all different packages, to drop NM support. And the "disease" is not NM iself (at least not in my opinion) it's rather the improper integration of NM with the "native" tools/configuration. After all, if NM's integration with ifupdown and the other native tools (ppp, vpnc, strongswan, etc.) and their configuration would be as good as I'd like to see it, then most if not all reasons for NM bashing would fall away. Because even if NM continues it's philosophy of begin a replacement for these "native tools",... no could largely complain anymore when both are well integrated and can just happily co-exist. >> So no,... don't want to spread FUD ;) > So my inital point still stands. Well,... forgive me if I don't always know all lines of the code and the details behind them. I just think I have a valid use case (want to use both, ifupdown and NM well integrated),... and this leads to all kinds of problems. Assuming that I'm not totally stupid, I came to the conclusion that there might be issues. Cheers, Chris.
