Ran yum update today and the system started to throw a ton of messages from the boot scripts that "nmcli" is missing. What in the world is that thing and why is it necessary to run in every boot script? The system seems to boot and work normally, but still... BTW, it's the F14 Rawhide.

Hi

nmcli is the command line interface for NetworkManager. It is part of the process of unifying the network management daemons in Fedora. If the next round of updates does not solve the issue, do file a bug report.

No, I think it's my own fault for using the legacy scripts on this box. I remember dimly now that I dropped NM because there was some difficulty with running something virtual... I wanted some bridge or the other. Sorry, this should've been obvious. I guess I was confused because every script ran it.
