Ok, I found that, it’s set up for ifup. Actually, I don’t remember if I did any setup at all, or if it automatically set up the network card at installation, it’s been a while. So I assume there’s nothing to worry about?
switch to NM in YaST and reboot your machine and check whether there is an improvement in boot time.When i did that in 12.2 there was a huge improvement. This condition is not seen in 12.3 and i switched back to ifup in 12.3
Yes, when you decided to use ifup (even when that decision was made by using some installation default, but using it fits you), then I do nopt understand why NM is running at all.
I haven’t even installed it.
On 12.2 NetworkManager.service was enabled by default. It checked if it should start NetworkManager by looking at the variable NETWORKMANAGER in /etc/sysconfig/network/config (that was an openSUSE specific patch to NetworkManager.service). Switching between NM and ifup in YaST caused this variable to be changed.
This patch (and the NETWORKMANAGER environment variable) was removed for 12.3. The switch between NM and ifup is now done directly by enabling/disabling NetworkManager.service and disabling/enabling network.service.
That change caused the bug that YaST couldn’t correctly determine whether ifup or NetworkManager is to be used, btw…
