[SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

Old Subject: Stupid move - lost net connect.
New Subject: Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

Question now at Post: # 11

========================

In my other install I have NO network manager.

So in a stupid move I changed: /etc/network/interfaces

# 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 enp9s0
#iface enp9s0 inet dhcp

which matches what I have on my backup system (now in it) that has no network-manager

# 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

and then deleted network-manager*

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

From my netinstall notes (you already have the interfaces file, so ignore that line. And change "wlp3s0" to your device name)...

3) If using wireless, "win an internet" by using one of the pre-prepared interfaces setups.

		sudo cp /media/usbstick/interfaces-home /etc/network/interfaces
		sudo ifup wlp3s0

(possibly: sudo systemctl restart networking.service)

From scratch:   

sudo su
wpa_passphrase myssid my_very_secret_passphrase >> /etc/network/interfaces

               
Then edit to look like:

# 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
				
	auto wlan0
	iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        wpa-ssid myssid
        wpa-psk verylongnumber

Be Excellent to Each Other...

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

The lack of ssid and psk related lines in your first post implies that enp9s0 is your wired ethernet adapter. If that's the case, then your /etc/network/interfaces should read like this if you're just using dhcp;

# 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/*
			
auto enp9s0
allow-hotplug enp9s0
iface enp9s0 inet dhcp

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

I heel like a stupid noob here.  I should have known better and installed ceni first.

OK I changed my /etc/network/interfaces to what glittersloth said since enp9s0 is correct.
The message I get on boot:

[FAILED] failed to start Raise network interface


The /etc/network/interfaces I'm using on this version of BL is:

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

auto eth0

^ Wait, I don't follow. What's "this version of BL" mean? Is that the system you're currently posting from, which is not the borked system, I assume? Are you sure your wired interface on the borked machine is enp9s0?

...and I goofed a bit
Put a # in front of source /etc/network/interfaces.d/* in the config on my previous post. (I edited it to match), or try the same on the first config posted in your opening post.

Verify that enp9s0 is correct for the borked system; glitersloth's solution should have worked.

Verify that the NetworkManager service is no longer active on the borked system; you uninstalled it, but I don't see a message that the service was deactivated. If it's still running, you won't connect using /etc/network/interfaces.

Are these separate computers, or do you have multiple BL installs on one?

Have you tried to copy the /etc/network/interfaces file that is working to the BL-install that is borked?

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

I have 3 Linux systems here, have had it like this for years.

  1. sda1 & sda2 are Debian Jessie - /ROOT and ~/ respectively

  2. sda5 - one of my data areas - all 3 systems access it it has;

    • my emails, claws-mail and thunderbird

    • wallpapers,

    • FF fookmarks

    • conkys - in the thousands

    • etc

  3. sda6 & sda7 - the borked system with 99% of my personal tweaks complete

  4. sda8 & sda9 - an almost out of the box BL Helium install

  5. sda10 - another data storage area

Currently I am on sda8 & 9

Wish ceni was still around.

...and I goofed a bit

Confirmed it is enp9s0, had to pop that into a network conky, which means it doesn't work on this system, as here it is:  enp2s0.  Hate that system will bring back my eth0 on all systems.

See above - multiple on one.

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

↑↑ in light of that post ↑↑ Reinstalled.

So change this to a help request.

network-manager has set up /etc/network/interfaces 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

but "nmcli" tells me: interface: enp2s0

Now since I have a hard-wired cable network connection on a desktop computer that never moves to some restaurant and really do not need (nor want) network-manager, is there a safe way to get rid of it and start using "dhcp" that come with the net install CD and also Debian Installer that BL uses.

IMHO: network-manager | wicd | dhcp should be options.
ceni of course is gone, it was ACE!

But this is interesting from the Debian Wiki on Network Manager:

Wired Networks are Unmanaged

As of Debian 6.0 "Squeeze", NetworkManager does not manage any interface defined in /etc/network/interfaces by default.

Unmanaged devices means NetworkManager doesn't handle those network devices. This occurs when two conditions are met:

    The file /etc/network/interfaces contains anything about the interface, even:

    allow-hotplug eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    And /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf contains:

    [main]
    plugins=ifupdown,keyfile

    [ifupdown]
    managed=false

So now it would seem that DCHP set up /etc/network/interfaces and NM is doing nothing because BOTH of those conditions are met.

So why can't I simply remove network-manager?

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

Based on what you've posted, it doesn't look like both those conditions are met. You still need:

allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

In your /etc/network/interfaces file (change eth0 to your actual interface); looks like your only entry is for the loopback.

In the past, I have always stopped then disabled the Network Manager service(s), added the entries for dhcp in the /etc/network/interfaces file, then reboot.

You should then have networking via dhcp with no Network manager services running. If it's working the way you want, use apt to remove/purge Network Manager if you want to; remember to remove nm-applet from any autostart files.

Yes that's where I quoted the section above from.

So since nmcli tells me:

 07 Jul 19 @ 17:57:36 ~
   $ nmcli
enp2s0: connected to Wired connection 1

I should have an interfaces file like:

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

allow-hotplug enp2s0
iface enp2s0 inet dhcp

I notice the Debian Wiki does not talk about the newer   "Predictable Interface Names"

That's a change in how now udevd assigns names to ethernet devices. Now your devices use the "Predictable Interface Names", which are based on (and quoting the sources):

  • Names incorporating Firmware/BIOS provided index numbers for on-board devices (example: eno1)

  • Names incorporating Firmware/BIOS provided PCI Express hotplug slot index numbers (example: ens1)

  • Names incorporating physical/geographical location of the connector of the hardware (example: enp2s0)

  • Names incorporating the interfaces's MAC address (example: enx78e7d1ea46da)

  • Classic, unpredictable kernel-native ethX naming (example: eth0)

I am guessing this "enp2s0" will work.

OK, I found this:

To disable Network Manager on Debian 8 or later:
$ sudo systemctl stop NetworkManager.service
$ sudo systemctl disable NetworkManager.service

then a reboot and X-fingers?

I will miss "nmcli"

and if X-ing fingers doesn't work let's hope:

sudo systemctl restart network-manager

does.

Now, let's pretend (hate: assume) with the new "interfaces" file and the "stop - disable - reboot" sequence that everything works.

Should I "remove" or "autoremove" network-manager?

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

Your /etc/network/interfaces file should look like:

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto enp2s0
iface enp2s0 inet dhcp

the system uses the loopback interface.

That seems to be overkill on the removal, what's the actual command for that bash alias? wpasupplicant is for wireless, so I don't see why that would get uninstalled as well. Unless you're starved for hard drive space, leave it installed.

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

I don't know if I understood your request correctly...

In times of systemd are no longer necessary  /etc/network/interfaces .
Whenever I had problems with my network, I decided to use systemd-networkd because of these instructions.
I can recommend this decision to everyone, because it works excellently.

Attention in german

- Conversion of the wired network to systemd-networkd
  (Umstellung des kabelgebundenen Netzwerkes auf systemd-networkd)

- wlan with systemd-networkd and wpa_supplicant
  (wlan mit systemd-networkd und wpa_supplicant)

HoaS has also already described this in 2015/16


My /etc/systemd/eth.network looks like this:

[Match]
Name=enp2s0

[Network]
DNS=192.168.178.1

[Address]
Address=192.168.178.45/24

[Route]
Gateway=192.168.178.1

My desktop gets a fixed ip (192.168.178.45) assigned by the router in the home network.

Re: [SOLVED] Help - how can I remove Network Manager safely?

Just a babble note. Someone can get ceni from the Siduction gnu/Linux repos. Long since taken to grabbing it from there. Still runs fine. Using it on my old crusty laptop on a Debian 9.8 and a 9.7 install. Still runs great. Agree with you Sector, like ceni the best out of what nm's I've dorked with.

ceni in the siduction repos - as I recall, you can download just the deb file and install it with gdebi or the command line and it will get the dependencies (3-4 perl files). You don't need to add Siduction (Sid) repos to your sources that way. Other option is to get the tarball and compile from source.

We used to update ceni in BL's jessie-backports repo https://www.bunsenlabs.org/repoidx.html … ion&v=ceni too. If it works well enough today we could push it to stretch-backports. stretch-backports, because ceni is included in Debian Buster (and will thereby be also available in BL Lithium) https://packages.debian.org/search?suit … words=ceni.

Thanks for chiming in, I thought that it got put in backports, but couldn't find it searching the forum.

It should work (but not with ipv6); as I recall it's just a perl script - so it has some perl dependencies. Give it a test drive on Lithium-beta, I suppose.
