Hello,

I want control over my /etc/network interfaces file, so I need to either disable or remove Network Assistant. How do I do that?

The thing is I want to create a bridge interface (br0) which won't happen as long as I can't edit the interfaces file. I know that such programs as Network Assistant, Network Manager, wicd, etc. don't play well with bridge interfaces.

So, how do I remove/disable it?

Eithe use a terminal and type, as root

#apt-get remove --purge mnetwork

Check that lots of stuff isn't being removed as well.

Or use synaptic and search for the apps you wish to remove.

I need to have full control on my /etc/interfaces (I access wifi on 2 networks, one with static IP address, the other with DHCP, at work I have an ethernet access with static IP)
Mepis assistant mnetwork does not work for me (I have to go walk through the tabs, restarting the interface here and there...)

I am not sure, but it seems that minstall does not alter the /etc/network/interfaces or the /etc/resolv.conf files.
wicd does.

Thanks anticapitalista,

Quote:
#apt-get remove --purge mnetwork


That returned a message that there's no package mnetwork.

Searching for it using Synaptic turned up nothing either. I've even looked for it in /usr/bin and it wasn't there.

What do I do?
