    God, NetworkManager sucks.. thanx

  2. Thanks for this. I just lost connectivity to a server for half an hour because just *editing* an ifcfg-xxxx file caused NetworkManager to helpfully down the primary interface 8-(. One does wonder what kind of people think enabling this kind of thing on a server OS by default is a good idea. I have a gold mine to sell them, cheaply.

    Yay! Thank you! Now I can have multiple addresses assigned to one interface and have it work!
