d-i? Define please so we're both on the same jargon page. And yes, until
N-M was sufficiently house broken & trained to leave a static setup
alone, and it had so many dependencies you could only neuter it by a
chatttr +i on the stuff you didn't want it editing. Or find it and use
the F8 key in mc. Six of one, half a dozen of the other as later as

Thats also true, simply because I'm the last one on the planet using
hosts files and no dhcpd's of any kind. So no one has answered me with a
howto to get rid of all the 169.254.xx.xx bull shit in my network
configs that stopped it from working. I turned out, after I had removed
ALL the avahi sources, it was still there, so I next killed dhcp, no
effect, but it all disappeared when I removed dhcpd5, that stopped all
the poisoning of my network configs.
IMO having a dhcpd5 invent bogus numbers when there is not an accessable
server, is both a huge security hole that could be exploited, and
grounds for 30 lashes useing a cat-o-9-tails made out of wet noodles
being applied to whoever thought it was a good idea. It was, IMNSHO, a
very very bad idea.

Given a sufficiently large pile of sheckles, I could probably make one,
as I am fairly well up in the physics. My formal education may have
stopped in the 9th grade, but my informal has never stopped. I read with
high interest the makings of what may yet be a TOE that includes dark
matter and gravity, all based on 5 events that are outside of the
expected boundaries of neutrino physics, detected by both ICE CUBE and
ANITA down near the south pole. It should still be on the front page of
most webish news sites. Events that are well beyond the newly rebuilt
LHC's ability to duplicate.
