The libvirt-bin daemon libvirtd creates virtual bridge(s) and interface(s) for the virtual machines it controls. NetworkManager kills these connections. I know that it is possible to uninstall or disable NetworkManager, but I wish to use it to manage the real interfaces on my system. I also know that it may be possible to add lines to /etc/network/interfaces; however, since libvirtd creates its interfaces dynamically, this seems a poor solution.

How does one make network manager ignore all interfaces EXCEPT eth0 and wlan0?
