Description José Romildo Malaquias 2012-10-12 15:58:41 UTC
I want to use connman to manage network connections on my gentoo system. I have added its init script to the default runlevel and it is doing well.

The problem is that the connman init script does not provide "net", therefore the init system tries other alternatives installed on the system.

The init system was starting net.eth0 automatically. To stop that I removed all /etc/init.d/net.* symlinks (but /etc/init.d/net.lo is kept).

Then the init system choose to start NetworkManager automatically, which I do not want either.

In order to connman to be an option, it should provide the "net" service.
