Progress of Gentoo NetworkManager Plug-in – Writing support finished

Hi everyone,

I’m glad to inform you that writing support has been implemented now. That means any change made via nm-applet will be written into /etc/conf.d/net and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. You won’t have to modify these configuration files manually in most time.

Welcome you to join and test the plug-in if you are interested. Current stable version is networkmanager-0.8-r102. (Thanks to Robert)

Remember to make your connection available to all users if you want your changes to be written to configuration files. If you have difficulty doing it, hope this article could help you. Here is a demo for making wireless connection:

Generated configuration files:

Several people wondered whether NetworkManager could work properly together with OpenRC scripts. I haven’t tested yet but I think it could be achieved. Here’s instruction on how to do it: Making NetworkManager work together with OpenRC scripts. It’s really easy.

Hope you enjoy it. If you have any problem, feel free to contact me 🙂

    Since you’re already working with /etc/conf.d/net and C, I’m wondering how difficult it would be to write a backend for netcf ( which in turn could be used by (for example) libvirt or the command line tool (ncftool).

      Well, that’s interesting. Currently we don’t have that plan. I don’t know much about netcf so I can’t tell how difficult it would be. But I guess what we have done could be a good start point.

    Sometimes it’s really that simple, isn’t it? I feel a little stupid for not thinking of this by myself.
