package network-manager

package network-manager installation prerequisites

libpam-elogind must be installed first

apt-get install libpam-elogind

Then you can install network-manager.

apt-get install network-manager

For a desktop panel indicator and control, issue the command below.

apt-get install network-manager-gnome

If you want Network Manager to manage all your interfaces, you will need in comment out all other interfaces except loopback in your /etc/network/interfaces file like this.

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
# allow-hotplug eth0
# iface eth0 inet dhcp

# iphone
# allow-hotplug eth1
# iface eth1 inet dhcp

Re: package network-manager

Vernon . . . are these posts elsewhere on the forum?  Let me know if anything needs to be moved.

Re: package network-manager

I have posted excerpts from other posts in the forum which may have different subjects. By putting them here, my hope is that these workarounds can be more easily found. My goal is to only post about packages that cannot work stand-alone as-is in Devuan without user intervention - especially those with systemd dependencies.

I have posted three packages that meet this criteria. Anyone should feel free to add others - whether the solutions have been already posted or not.

Please feel free to rearrange as you see fit.
