What about YaST > Network > Network devices and setting to “traditional method with ifup” there. And of course then fill in the fields needed.
IMHO this is still the ‘normal’ way for a system manager to configure a NIC. And it will then start at runlevel 3 (and above). The usage of networkmanagers by the end-user is because when the end user switches on a laptop somewhere he has no system manager available. It works when an end-user is active in a GUI, thus runlevel 5 and loged in.
Thanks guys, I used yast’s network manager to set my ip manually. But at first time, it was hard for me, cos all the settings are spread to individual tabs, dns, gateway, ips are all in different tabs.
For the mac, the method that I mentioned works flawlessly.
