Default F9 and bridged networking

Is there some new-fangled way to get bridged networking working with F9?

I put my bridge in /etc/network/interfaces and restart networking and no
bridge.


==============
if auto, lo

iface lo
...

auto br0
...

iface eth0
...
==============


????

Gerry

Make sure NetworkManager is disabled and you use the old "network" service.* This is how I got it working.

I see You come from Debian land.
I had the same problem as You a few days ago when I tried to install a
Debian router for the first time in my life.
I just couldn't understand where should I put iptables rules and where
is /etc/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
It took me 30 minutes of googling and reading to gain some good
understanding of how Debian does network.


You can do the same (google).

Here is how to do bridging RedHat-way: http://tomdeb.org/node/1181

I'm really beginning to hate this NetworkManager. First, it randomly
wipes out /etc/resolv.conf, then if fails to run early enough during
boot sequence so that you can mount remote NFS directories from
/etc/rc.local, so I resetpriorities on it so that it takes its
priorities from its init file and after that then the shutdown hangs at
'Turning off quotas', and now NetworkManager wrecks network bridging.


yum removeforever NetworkManager

Add to /etc/sysconfig/network:
NETWORKWAIT=yes

Ok, I put the bridge in ifcfg-br0, and create ifcfg-eth0/1 files as
shown and still it does not work with NetworkManager. I have no br0
device. Going to try removing NetworkManager next.

I'm pretty upset NetworkManager doesn't handle bridge interfaces yet
too. I'm told that NetworkManager will eventually need to support this
and everything else service network used to do. During this
transitional phase if you really want missing features then you need to
turn on service network.


It is possible with the right configuration options to use both service
network and NetworkManager simultaneously.

Yes, I have been able to run both NetworkManager and "the old way" at the same
time. Unless the ifcfg file for a device is marked NM_CONTROLLED=yes,
NetworkManager leaves it alone and the "old" system seems to leave
NM_CONTROLLED=yes devices alone but you can use it to manage the other
devices.

There seems to have been a spurt of development/fix activity recently and (to
me) NetworkManager is looking better (but still has some work to do).

The only problem I have had is that using s-c-network to turn NM_CONTROLLED on
or off (yes or no) is NOT detected by nm-system-settings whereas using vi to
make the change is detected. Yes, this is bz'ed and I am waiting to see what
the package manager/developer wants me to do ...

I tried this already and I was not able to make the two services work
together. eg: when I put my NFS mounting into rc.local and had both
services chkconfig on when it would boot up my NFS mounts would succeed
but then at login NM would have no connections. I played with this for
quite a while and never could get it working with both of them. So
eventually I saw that NM was S99 by default so I reset priorities to
what is in its init file and then I could shut off network service and
just use NM. But now without bridging, I think I might have to go back
to old network service especially because NM is randomly erasing
/etc/resolv.conf and then apps fail.
