I also use ifup on all my systems.

If you have any connections configured in YaST before switching to NM, NM brings these up when it starts before login. nm-system-settings is responsible for reading the config files in /etc/sysconfig/network and telling NetworkManager about them. Otherwise it's a bug.

-- The Crock Cleaner
Will - I think you are missing the point of this thread. Even if the NetworkManager does start up the connections before login, the problem is that it does NOT start them up early enough in the boot up process. An early startup of the network connections is needed so that other services which are also starting up, during boot, and dependent on having the network connections up and running, can also start. NTP is just one of several daemons that need access to the network, and if it is not available then it fails to start up.

So far as I know, ifup is the only method that works for these scenarios. So IMHO the crock is still quite dirty!
