View Full Version : [ubuntu] static IP, and filtering in synaptic

March 4th, 2009, 04:58 AM
I did this,

$ sudo aptitude uninstall network-manager-gnome

When I issue " # apt-get update; apt-get upgrade", I do not want to reload the network-manager.

How to filter the checking on certain packages?

What is the issue or what are you trying to achieve?

Is there a particular reason you don't want to reload?

Have you tried doing the update-upgrade commands? You should update your system periodically anyway.

Did you try running those commands that it gives you?

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

I don't think that will install the network monitor if you don't already have it installed. Does it list it in the list before you say yes or no?

Good, it does not re-install at all. I use static IP here, so I do not need network-manager.
