Re: Net connection problem

> 2- The worst of the problems. I have no network connection unless I run
I solved the problem by uninstalling the network manager crap. It wanted
to uninstal some useless program (evolution) which I never use. I tried it
once and it reminded me too much of windows so I disabled it. On SuSE it always
wanted to uninstal other stuff so I never bothered uninstalling it. I was
pleased to note that on Fedora you can remove this crapware without uninstalling
most of gnome. This is a good improvement.
This network manager may have a purpose when running on laptops but for
a regular PC it is seen as a trojan that disables internet access on the
command line. I was puzzled not to have internet access since as it boots
I saw that it recognized the router and filled resolv.conf with valid
information. Even disabling it in the services didn't do anything. I could
only get internet access after I ran startx.
The bug only got fixed after I uninstalled that trojan.
I think that this is rather stupid to search for a best connection when it
is told from the start that it only has one, it is comcast and if comcast
goes out there is no point trying anything else since it is the only thing
available in the house.
On my wife's computer it keeps disconnecting the ethernet. I have both SuSE
10.0 and fedora 8 on her computer. I have no issue with the ethernet connection
whatsoever on SuSE 10. I hope that what I found on my computer can fix the
issue on hers and her firefox 3 keeps going in the offline mode.
She doesn't use evolution either so removing it is just doing some cleanup.
