Using KDE4 download CD ISO and upgrades from factory site.
The 11.0 system apparently comes up in ifup and does not give the installer the option to use Knetworkmanager as in 10.2. Also the icon in the tray which has changed its traditional form as in most distros, is a bit puzzling to this writer. The installation gave me a DHCP address which works on the Nvidia eth0 MB port OK. I don’t like to work in DHCP and prefer a static set of addresses.
Right-clicking the new green icon shows both eth0 and wlan0 in bold at the top. But, if I left-click ‘edit connections’ there are no connections shown. If I am bold and enter a new connection as a static, I then cannot get on-line. If again bolder, I enter a wireless address, it also hiccups.
I am not a stranger to setting up these connections in other distros on this HD. Why would Novell change connection philosophy in a distro?
If someone could point me in the right direction here, I’d appreciate it.
