Order in which init scripts providing a service are tried
 
Hello.

There are some init scripts that provide network connection on my gentoo
system: net.eth0, net.wlan0, net.wlan1, NetworkManager and connman. All
of them provide the "net" service. (connman init script has been edited
to provide "net", as the original installed one does not provide it -
see bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=438142)

I want connman chosen to provide "net".

The init system first tries the net.* scripts. So I removed them (they
are symlinks to net.lo, which should not be removed).

Then the init system tries NetworkManager. I do not want to remove it
because it is installed as a dependence to some other packages.

I have tried adding a 'before "NetworkManager"' clause in the connman
init script, but it did not help.

How can I tell the init system to try connman before all other init
scripts providing "net"?

Any clues?

I don't know how to force openrc to use a specific net provider but you
can try to toggle the rc_depend_strict setting in /etc/rc.conf.

You can also try to add a line like
rc_networkmanager_provide="!net"
