    network-manager dependency

    Code:
    apt-get --purge remove network-manager
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
      mythbuntu-gdm-theme
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    The following packages will be REMOVED:
      mythbuntu-default-settings* mythbuntu-desktop* network-manager* network-manager-gnome*
    Why would anything mythbuntu depend on network-manager? Sorry, but I fail to understand this.

    I'm trying very hard to get RID of network-manager as it seems like it keeps messing up my wireless connection...

    mythbuntu-desktop is a metapackage which installs all parts (one of them being network manager. mythbuntu-default-settings must set something in network manager therefor it needs network manager installed.

    I see the complication here, and I'll see if we can change network manager to be a recommend instead. It's tied a bit hard to the env right now.

    To use a static address or network, click the network manager icon and choose "Manual Configuration". You can then setup a static access point from the list and/or static IP address.
