    Default yast-networksettings disabled in 11.1 ?!


    suse 11.1 now doesn't use yast anymore to change networksettings. But I
    need to setup a static dhcp server and static IP adress for my pc. How
    do I do that? Yast tells me to use networkmanager which is the applet in
    the panel I assume. But this applet has no options to change anything
    like DHCP or IP address?
    I'm confused.

    Hi
    On the 'Global' tab in YaST network devices, change to traditional
    ifup method.

    Thanks for the reply. But will I still be able to use the networkmanager
    applet in the panel if I change to ifup? I like this applet to change to
    vpn connection. And how does it work without ifup, since yast is telling
    something about to setup through networkmanager?

    NetworkManager doesn't work for me at all. I'm looking forward to
    seeing a solution in this thread.

    I got it working by first switching to traditional ifup in yast. Then I
    could set my static ip address. Saved and closed yast. Internet works
    fine but now I lost networkmanager applet, and I need this for vpn. So
    back to yast, selected networkmanager again and saved. My static ip
    remains and I've got the manager icon back. And Now I can even edit my
    connection through that applet icon! Strange it works now suddenly, but
    glad it works now
