Pray that you can still get rid of NM and use something less convenient and more
reliable. As long as developers delude themselves into thinking that any
application which make decisions doesn't need a usable "do it my way" path for
the admin, we will have cases of total non-working.
Is anyone able to reassure me that NM will finally work this time?
The greeks called it "hubris," thinking that one is a God and can perform
miracles. That's why system-config-display must be manually loaded and NM simply
has no way (which works) to bring up an interface at boot instead of when a user
logs in. That's why PulseAudio has interraction between the oss mixer, alsa
mixer, PA volume widget, PA mixer, and advanced mixer, and sound either works by
magic at install or is unlikely to ever be satisfactory short of removing PA and
The only things I can reassure you of are that (a) NM will be better, (b) it
won't be as better as the developers think it is, and (c) it's unlikely that
there will be any better documentation.
