    Hello dear OpenSuse-Friends well - i just did a fresh install of OpenSuse 12.3 on a Notebook. All went fine - and i am very very happy with 12.3 - all looks great Well i now have to configure all that stuff. Whats with the setting and configuring of KNetworkmanagement!? How should i do that!?

    If you have but one network connection, ifup would be suggested. If you have more than one network connection such as wired and wireless or for a laptop, multiple wireless connections, then you should use Network Manager. And of course, for a single network connection or not, anyone can use Network Manager if they wish to. You must go to YaST / Network Devices / Network Settings and make sure all network connections are configured. Then enable "User Controlled with NetworkManager" to use Network Manager. You should also elect to show the Network Manager icon on the task bar which is in the System Tray Settings for KDE.

    Thank You,

    well i understand the following

    well - i think that the step before the so called enabling the Networkmanager in the task bar which is in the System Tray Settings for KDE is to do some preliminariy
    thiings in the YAST - Section (you mentioned above)




    Aftrer the fresh install of opensuse 12.3 i want to set up the Knetworkmanager so i guess that i have to erase all the entries that are mentioned in the IFUP

    In other words – i think that i have to erase all the configurationsfiles of YAST (ifup)


    Code:
    Code:
    cd /etc/sysconfig/network; ls ifcfg-[earw]* | perl -p -e '{ chomp; `mv $_ $_\.old`; }
    or is this codesnipped enough



    Code:
    rm /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*
    look forward to hear from you

    I would say there is no reason to erase your old settings, if left over from an upgrade, unless you have a problem. But of course, you can do so if you wish. Again, just look back at my original suggestion on how to make it work. You can start afresh or where you left off.
