Re: [PLUG] NetworkManager vs /etc/network/interfaces

if i understand correctly that you want eth0 to be managed via
/etc/network/interfaces instead of via N-M, then you should have something
like the following in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf:



from /usr/share/doc/network-manager/README.Debian:

Managed vs. Unmanaged mode and /etc/network/interfaces
Devices listed in /etc/network/interfaces _will_ be managed by NetworkManager
unless the ifupdown system-config-setting is enabled and is setup to run
in "Unmanaged mode".

The config to select unmanaged/managed mode is in


Unmanaged mode will make NetworkManager not touch any wired/wireless device
matching an interface name configured in /etc/network/interfaces.

Managed mode will make NetworkManager manage all devices and will make
NetworkManager honour all dhcp and static configurations for wired and
wireless devices.

After modifying /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf _or_
/etc/network/interfaces you may want to tell NetworkManager about the changes
by running "service network-manager restart".
