Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 197828
NetworkManager not turned on by default

I don't know if that is still a goal for FC6.
It would be nice, at least for laptops
See also bug #171348
From what jrb said, the plan was to have it turned on by default if the package
is installed, and make sure the package is installed in relevant configurations.
IMHO Network manager is not yet complete. It does not allow one to
save static IP address information. There is network configurations where using
host configuration protocols is not possible. For example my home network with
public address space and a bridging DSL gw. This should be quite easy to implement
Not going to make FC7 at this point
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
