[Bug 798348] No network without networkmanager

--- Comment #36 from Will Stephenson <wstephenson@xxxxxxxx> 2013-03-04 15:41:36

This is the situation as of Build97 (post RC2) DVD install
Post installation, first boot, networking is not active
On second boot or after rcnetwork restart, traditional network is enabled and

yast2 lan: "User controlled with NetworkManager" is checked, but NetworkManager
is not running (systemctl status NetworkManager -> loaded, disabled, inactive).

Changing networking type with yast2 lan has no effect.

What does work is

systemctl stop network.service
systemctl enable NetworkManager.service (this creates the symlink
network.service masking /etc/init.d/network)
systemctl --system daemon-reload (so systemd knows about the new masking)
systemctl start NetworkManager.service

Summary is, with a DVD install you need to know this incantation to get NM and
therefore useful networking on a laptop. We might as well call the DVD
"Workstation edition" and make a positive out of this.
