I tend to use the shell most of the time. If I know which one, I prefer using a command for most tasks instead of the Fedora's GUI tools.
My eth0 is configured to activate at boot. I'd like to control my network settings during a session but
# /sbin/ifconfig eth0 down
simple ignores me!
# /sbin/ifconfig -a
show that eth0 is still down.
Then I do:
and then patiently tab to highlight the eth device and Activate or Deactivate buttons and hit Enter.
Is there a better way to do this?
