GUI of Network configuration manager is not present centos 6

Post by motogeeeksatyam » 2011/08/20 17:46:40

Hi,

I am using centos 6 and the problem is that when i am typing command :
system-config-network
a screen inside terminal gets opened (image of screen is attached) and not a GUI network configuration manager.

I tried installing network Network Manager through source but still i am getting the same screen and no GUI.
I also tried command:
system-config-network-gui
but the terminal says "bash: system-config-network-gui: command not found".

i also used command:
system-config-network-tui
This command also displays the same screen attached.

That is correct. What is (or is not) present in [i]CentOS 6[/i] is identical to that of the [b]upstream product[/b], [i]RHEL 6[/i].

Yes, that is possible. First of all, remove all of your attempted source install. Then it is as simple as --

[code]
[b]yum install NetworkManager
service NetworkManager start[/b]
[/code]
Next log out completely and then then log back in again. You should now have the NetworkManager icon visible on your desktop.

For any further help, please consult the [b][i]Upstream Deployment Guide[/i][/b], [url=http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html-single/Deployment_Guide/index.html#part-Networking]Part III. Networking[/url].

Oh my goodness, I see from that (Alan's link)
that they aren't even including system-config-network as a default. More Fedora desktop-isms being pushed into what is theoretically, primarily a server O/S.


My, I feel old.

Yep. Closer I look the more I see F11-F13. Anyway they did do a nicer job with it but stopped short of F15 where system-settings is right in the applet. Anyway I still do the old chkconfig --network on just to besure my nic's up in time. O, NM applet should do the trick wrt config, at least it does for me. Let me know if you really really want it and I'll open a repo for the short term. Unfortunately it will replace -tui so... it's sinful.

Late edit: Maybe I should haves said; for me, that applet has yet to create a system-setting automatically where it does in F15.

Thanks for the offer, but at least, for the life of 6.x, it seems, it will include system-config-network-tui if you download it.

Hopefully, by the time I have to worry about 7, it'll work. Or perhaps Ubuntu will have taken over the server market.
