I prefere networking, how to disable network-manager


Hi,
I have problem with network manager ( I want static address, manual dns and so on)
I used to do it in /etc/network/interfaces with the new network-manager I am lost, I prefer, at least for the moment, to continue with the classic network,
how and where to disable the networkmanger.
thanks a lot

You cannot be serious!

The same way you installed it. Tell your package manager to remove it.

Or you could just remove it from the startup.
IIRC: redhat systems go like this:

# update-rc.d NetworkManager remove

Quote:
debian lenny
sudo aptitude remove network-manager

note - the nm-applet will let you set up static IP and manual DNS and all that - rt-click on the applet and select "edit connections" - but I sympathise: I usually prefer manual over gui myself.

Thanks for reply
That's what I need.
By the way the file /etc/inittab, is not present, so what is the file consulted at the startup by init.
thanks a lot

The old sysV init stuff has turned into upstart jobs in /etc/init.

man inittab
Quote:
The /etc/inittab file was the configuration file used by the original
System V init(8) daemon.

The Upstart init(8) daemon does not use this file, and instead reads
its configuration from files in /etc/init. See init(5) for more
details.
