Error Conflicts with the installed package 'network-manager'
You need to use your "Package Manager", which will resolve these conflicts for you.
The package manager is NOT Add/Remove software, it's likely to be called Adept, or Synaptic
And add this line
deb http://apt.wicd.net jaunty extras
to the file /etc/apt/sources.list
(you need to be root to do this)
NB You may have to change jaunty
so it matches the other release names in that file (Intrepid, Hardy, Whatever). I have no idea which release eeebuntu is currently based on
Now fire up your package manager. Make it update the list of packages available. Then search for wicd
and mark it for installation. Install it. This will properly get rid of NM for you.
Read the notes in the wicd install page
, particularly "Troubleshooting".
