A 'yum search NetworkManager' does find a package. I don't know what
would provide the plain old network script, though.
I have no network now. I don't know what it is I'm doing, because I
keep track of the changes I make, and they all *seem* reversible. But
there's no apparent pattern to what gives me network and what doesn't.
I deactivate and then activate, and start and restart and there's
just no love for a brother.
I've learned that there are two different GUI network configurators,
one for each init script. There's "system-config-network" for network
and "nm-something..." for NetworkManager. I just need a good
comprehensive primer on how it works. The RedHat style init scripts
are funky to begin with. Funky or archaic, one of the two.
