[SOLVED] Getting ifupdown to cooperate with Network Manager

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – You wind up with this deal where network-manager doesn't start when eth0 doesn't connect, i.e. when you are 'a goin mo-bile (i.e. wireless). It's irritating. So I wrote this script: #!/bin/bash ifconfig eth0 | grep inet if [[ $? != 0 ]];then service network-manager stop service network-manager start fi ...and called it networkManagerFix.sh. I put it in /opt/scripts where I put all my scripts and where my backup system is configured to look when it does a backup. Put a link to this script in /etc/init.d/ sudo ln -s /opt/scripts/networkManagerFix.sh /etc/init.d/ne (Hardware)
