I disabled NetworkManager because it is the source of problems which
took me hours to solve: I forced the host name of my laptop to avoid
problems with Xsession.

I explain: suppose you begin your session without any wifi, your X
session belongs to john doe localhost localdomain  Then, for any reasons
you can imagine, you need an Internet connection, the hostname change
and you become  john doe xxxx wifiprovider net and X refuses to open
graphical apps because the session belongs to john doe localhost localdomain

Forcing the hostname in /etc/sysconfig/network avoids this problem.

Now, when it writes the /etc/resolv.conf, NetworkManager writes:

search yourdomain.fr (the one you have declared in /etc/sysconfig/network)

and dns does not works......

Unless this strange/wrong behaviour of NetworkManager could be
corrected, I never use this service.
