I'm runing opensuse 11.1 / kde 3.5
i have selected networkmanager in YaST2 (opensuse configuration tool) for
my internet connexion because i think knetworkmanager is easy to use when i
want to connect my laptop to a wifi AP when i'm away from home.
But when i'm home, i need to connect to my home ethernet network with a fix
ip for some good reason like file synchronization via unison and tv via ip
. Therefore i used knetworkmanager to configure a connexion on my ethernet
card . I entered all parameters on the knetwork window : fixed ip, network
mask, DNS, default gateway, connexion name and, of course, i checked the
automatic connexion box .
Then, i expect knetworkmanager to connect automatically with the fixed IP
parameters i entered at each login when my ethernet cable is plugged into
my laptop ethernet card at home . On opensuse 10.3, it works correctly, but
with opensuse 11.1, it does not. Surprisingly, on opensuse 11.1, it
connects with a dhcp IP, so without the fixed IP i parametered !!! (like
192.168.0.50 instead of 192.168.0.8)
I have run kdcop to find some function that i could call with a script at
startup, something like ' "dcop knetworkmanager connect "eth0" ' . But i
found nothing like that.
I need this fixed IP, as written above.
I am quite disappointed by this unexpected bug/behaviour.
Maybe, there is a simple workaround ?
Is there some configuration feature that i missed to perform ?
How can i correct this annoying bug ?
Thanks for your help .
Since I want to use this netbook on other networks I really want to use
NetworkManager and dhcp. However, like you, I want to use static at home. My
workaround is to use dhcp, but tell the router to reserve my preferred address
for this netbook. It seems to work perfectly. I get the same address every
