I like to work offline sometimes, doing shell scripting or editing, but Debian won't let me unplug my modem without giving me a hard time. It either won't boot up or if i'm at Bash, I lose my command prompt and it nags me about my NIC being disconnected. How do I disable this notification feature so I can work offline when I'd like or choose to?
Yes I did. If I work offline in X, I don't get a problem, I can unplug my modem. It's only when I out of X that these things happen, and I often like to get out of the brain fry of gui. lol. I'm trying to master commands and the shell. The mouse, desktop and it's toys are a tempting distraction.
