hotplug weirdness

are-you-serious-wtf-meme-baby-faceRunning debian is fun but when a setting is needed and then not needed makes it infurating.

It seems the r8169 card (my blog) wanted a setting so that network manager would not control it. Ever since the setting was appended to interfaces the card has returned to being a model citizen.

I am either stupid or network manager is doing something it did not used to do since you dont screw with network settings when it works since 2012.

Hey it’s fixed for now – crosses fingers.
