Lost network mgr in Intrepid!!


Hi-All,
Read somewhere that Intrepid was better with its native network mgr. than wicd!!!! BIG mistake in removing wicd "it did work" .Now I have a dead laptop (compaq presario v2630) I can't seem to get the network mgr off the live CD...I've done the usual steps: Synaptic mgr. uncheck all areas that indicate net connectivity...Still when I reload the mgr. ubuntu wants to connect to the net!!! It's ignoring the live cd rom!!
Thanks all for suggestions and help.
John in Dallas.
PS: In software sources only items checked are intrepid, isn't that correct? or should they be cleared too????

I realize your your question made perfect since to you. But for the life of me I do not understand your goal

a live cd is that a live cd and when you reboot it goes back to what is a system that runs from a cd so do all the changes then remaster your live cd.how reburn one from there program

what is the goal
Quote:
I want this to happen but this happens
the programs you are talking about are the same thing pretty much. all changes done with the live cd will be erased after rebooting unless you build your own livcd remaster .
Quote:
and of course when you reload the mngr it loads files you can not modify even if you wanted not even as sudo
if you do not want to use that device that connect to the internet just type sudo ifconfig eth0 down or what ever your net device is eth0 eth1 wlan0 wlan1 what ever and trust me it will not try to connect.

Hi-All,

Thanks Drakeo,
All I want is to restore my connectivity. I uninstalled wicd which broke connectivity. That installation removed network mgr. gnome,
Using the live CD 8.10, I'm trying to copy/reinstall network mgr.
For some unknown reason, intrepid won't recognize the cd/rom which is checked in synaptic mgr. and nothing else in ubuntu software.
Why? There's some step I'm missing here, WHAT!!?
Thanks / John in Dallas.

you could download the packages manually and install them
http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid-...etwork-manager

dpkg -i network-manager network-manager-gnome

of course you will need to substitute the actual package names in that command for instance.....

network-manager_0.7~~svn20081018t105859-0ubuntu1.8.10.1_i386.deb

The goal is to get the eth0 up and they are trying to use the live cd to boot it up and reinstall the net manager boot your live disk down load and just down load the wcid from the repository and save it to your hard drive sda1 sudo nautilus then copy and paste it to you /home/your user on the /dev/sdaX what ever yours is then reboot the system and click the deb package and it will install. other wise back up your documents and reinstall this is a long way around.
Quote:
but the best thing to do on a hard wired is to sudo ifconfig eth0 up and then dhcpcd ubuntu may be dhcpd is the command.those are the commands wicd uses as a written program.
if you have a auto dhcp dsl or cable modem your are connected to it will connect Then go into synaptics and reinstall what ever you want.
