I once again got upset about network-manager:

  • no static IPs - only dhcp
  • no profiles
  • auto connect when network cable is plugged in - not always wanted because it could brake a second connection by rewriting the routing table
  • no support for ppp connections like modem or umts/gprs
  • no support for hidden essids

will those features ever be added???

is there any alternative?

to whom should i speak if i want to address those problems?

as i was told wpa_supplicant is powerful enough to implement some of those features so why are they hold back?
