Subject: Wired network interface is configured as unmanaged by NM in wheezy xfce-live

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: live-boot
Version: 3.0.1-1 
Dunno if i'm doing this correct. I sent my previous bug to the wrong
package apparently, and i'm not sure if this is the right one or if it's
maybe live-config?

I don't have the version number, but it was installed from wheezy
xfce-live-cd so I guess the one stated above is correct.

Anyways, the conversation can be seen below...

Thanks :-)

NM not managing the interface is actually expected behaviour and the 
real bug is that live-cd is configuring the interface in 
/etc/network/interfaces. 
If it installs network-manager, it should not configure the wired 
interface in /etc/network/interfaces. 

Please file a bug against the debian live-cd package. 

Thanks, 
Michael

First, it is likely a Debian installer issue, and certainly neither
live-boot nor live-config. If you boot the live system, wired is set up
correctly in the live system. I just confirmed this for both the xfce
and gnome images.

Second, we need to find out if:

1. Installing XFCE via non-live media (CD-1 LXDE flavour, DVD-1 or
netinst) results in wired being managed by NetworkManager. If that is
not the case, it definitely has nothing to do with live.

2. If it turns out the answer to 1 is "no, it is not", then we need to
know if this affects running the installer from XFCE live flavor only,
or also GNOME live flavor, where I would certainly expect it to work.
However, there is no point in even trying this until we settle the
answer to 1.

I haven't time yet to test either of these scenarios but will take a
look at it when I do. Meanwhile, I will reassign this bug to the
debian-live pseudopackage until we decide exactly where it belongs.

Package: debian-live
Followup-For: Bug #710226

I confirmed this bug using netinst and selecting XFCE as the alternate desktop. So it is not
a live-specific installer bug.

I have attached the installer logs, /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
and am reassigning this to netcfg.
