Greetings. After installing Network Manager, my static routes don't work anymore. I'm using /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0 to define those routes. Currently. I have to add it manually every time I rebooted my laptop. Is there anythings that I missed out here? Thanks.
Other than the file that determines static routes
is: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes (at least in FC5) I don't
know what to say.

Right now it is easiest to use NetworkManagerDispatcher for this.

1) As root create the directory /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d 2) In that directory create a new file called staticroutes or whatever
you like.
3) You script should be something like this.


if [ -x /usr/bin/logger ]; then
        LOGGER="/usr/bin/logger -s -p user.notice -t

if [ ! -x /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes ]; then
  $LOGGER "script /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes missing or
not executible"

if [ -n $1 ] && [ $2 == "up" ]; then
  $LOGGER "adding static routes for $1"
  /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes $1

4)  Chown the script to 700
5)  Make sure that NetworkManagerDispatcher is running

	chkconfig NetworkManagerDispatcher on
	service NetworkManagerDispatcher start

I think that should be about it.,
