    FC9 : how to eliminate NetworkManager


    Hi,

    I have just installed FC9 in TEXT mode.

    I have disabled the NetworkManager service by un-checking it in <setup>.

    But after a reboot I see this in resolv.conf

    Code:
    # generated by NetworkManager, do not edit!
    
    # No nameservers found; try putting DNS servers into your
    # ifcfg files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts like so:
    #
    # DNS1=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    # DNS2=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    # SEARCH=lab.foo.com bar.foo.com
    Looks like NetworkManager is still alive!!

    How do I kill NetworkManager all together.


    Please advice.

    Thx
    Vai

    Have you tried editing this file to your liking and seeing if NetworkManager changes it?

    Yes. I have changed resolve.conf 3-4 times.
    Upon reboot, the file is overwritten and the content in the first post appears.

    Try stopping it first, then removing it from startup.
    Code:
    /sbin/service NetworkManager stop
    /sbin/chkconfig NetworkManager off
