    NetworkManager and documentation

    I just installed Fedora 30.

    The preferred method of managing networks seems to be NetworkManager.
    Doing things the old way - with ifcfg- scripts in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts seems to be discouraged, I have to install an optional package just to try it.

    I check the Fedora docs for Fedora 30 and there is nothing on NetworkManager nor network configuration.
    I find the official NetworkManager page at gnome.org, and it has a link - to Fedora 24 documentation. That seems a bit dated.

    What I want to do is set up a single wired ethernet interface with a static address. NetworkManager started things up with DHCP instead. If possible, I want it to use and respect my /etc/hosts file and /etc/resolv.conf file. Could someone please point me to the best up-to-date documentation on using NetworkManager that would be applicable to Fedora 30?

    Thank you,

    Re: NetworkManager and documentation

    There's probably something for nm-cli. But I still disable NM and setup my if-cfg files if I need a static network. Sooner or later, I think they plan to make that impossible, but for now it still works.

    Here's an nmcli tutorial, though I stopped reading before I got to how to configure a single interface with an address. I assume it can do that though.

    The RHEL documentation should be mostly applicable to Fedora: https://access.redhat.com/documentat...ng_guide/index
