I told you wrong info, I'm running E17 on Fedora 10 - the package is
called enligtenment and current version is 0.16 and that confused me,
and also there are also E16 packages available in Fedora 10 repos...
really confusing.

At home I could probably use nm-applet trick to make wireless work,
but how to make wired networking work with static IP addresses - not
with DHCP?

At work we have static IP addresses so nm-applet trick doesn't work.

For Elightenment to work as normal desktop I see two major issues:
- network manager integration (or wicd integration)
- usb stick automatic mounting

do you have any suggestions how to make this work?
