[SOLVED] ascii wicd naming issue

loaded up my  ASCII32(bit) DVD dated 08-22-17
did a Refracta install from the gui apps menu of XFCE to a sda3 primary partition
'
on reboot I couldn't get my WIRED network to connect and don't have wireless
'
used to get my network device name (after much playing around)

ip netconf

!
my device was named enp2s3 !!!  not eth0
'
more playing/hunting around [this is ascii - so its okay]
I had to change some info in this file - be careful - no warranty included
Olzeke51@ascii32:~$ sudo cat /etc/wicd/manager-settings.conf
[sudo] password for Olzeke51:
[Settings]
backend = external
wireless_interface = None
wired_interface = enp2s3
wpa_driver = wext
always_show_wired_interface = True
use_global_dns = False
......

I edited the bold items   [can't bold inside of a code block!]
and now it works - even after a reboot  smile

EDIT>>> I had to reboot - logging out didn't bring the network up
EDIT>>> and not sure how to stop/start services - more to learn !!

FWIW -

Olzeke51@ascii32:~$ apt-cache policy wicd
wicd:
  Installed: 1.7.4+tb2-4
  Candidate: 1.7.4+tb2-4
  Version table:

FWIW #2  - I did an apt update/upgrade  - with 100+ changes and now

Olzeke51@ascii32:~$ uname -a
Linux ascii32 4.9.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 4.9.51-1 (2017-09-28) i686 GNU/Linux

HTH someone - I did follow the DNG mailing list (for a while) in re: to network device nameing;
never got the final on what naming scheme Devuan was going to follow.  --ascii appears to use
the newer scheme!

Maybe this can help shorten the long names https://sysdfree.wordpress.com/117/

Re: [SOLVED] ascii wicd naming issue

Just picking up the smallest of your crumbs:

you can bold inside a quote block smile

which could provide a similar layout separation as a code block, though not scrolling.

As for network interface re-naming, I can't offer anything not already said. Basically it's a udev thingy, and (stupid as it is, one might think), one of those warts that come with the "modern" and "improved" wheel. Slightly easier to fix than rid yourself of avahi and gvfs and packaged and uuidd and whatnot, I think.

Re: [SOLVED] ascii wicd naming issue

I edited my original post with this bit of info

EDIT>>> I had to reboot - logging out didn't bring the network up
EDIT>>> and not sure how to stop/start services - more to learn !!

@r.r - you know , I was suspicious of that possibility - but too lazy to try it -
wasn't sure what the timeout was/is

@r.r  - udev/eudev warts  - I like that !!

Re: [SOLVED] ascii wicd naming issue

service <name> start|stop|restart
OR
/etc/init.d/<name> start|stop|restart

Where name is the name of the service (script) in /etc/init.d/ that you want to start, stop or restart.

Re: [SOLVED] ascii wicd naming issue

I think if you add wheezy to the search you may find more appropriate information

I hope openrc gets adopted here.  It makes many mysteries seem simple.

Where name is the name of the service (script) in /etc/init.d/ that you want to start, stop or restart.

man page now says you should use --full-restart for the restart command.

service <name> --full-restart
