Network manager is supposed to be much better than network, how so?
it supports dnsmasq for one…
Also Network Manager supports dispatcher scripts. How can that help? For one, I used to send interface up emails. To do so, all I had to do was put the following script in “/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d”
#!/bin/sh cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts . ./network-functions [ -f ../network ] && . ../network # Notify programs that have requested notification IF=$1 STATUS=$2 cat
