Does anybody knows why Ubuntu's NM does'n use native implementations for networking ?
For example if I set up a pppoe connection in the network manager (using nm-applet) it has it's own way of storing connections and doesn't use native debian networking sheme, for PPPoE use pppd and store settings in
/etc/ppp/pears. I once configured a wired connection that didn's show up in
/etc/network/interfaces but was visible in NM ... This is BAD for me because if I don't start X, from CLI I cannot connect to my network connections configured in NM ( or not as easy I would expect), for example in CLI I could do pon "dsl-provider" or poff to turn on or off pppoe connection, but my NM's pppoe connections are not visible to pppd and if I configure a pppoe connection using pppd is not visible in NM.
Maybe I am missing something and don't know how to use it ...
