My original config file is:
How can I disable that, i.e., I do not want to let kudzu automatically
generate the ifcfg-eth0 for me, while still let kudzu to detect all the
Is that possible to do that by some options passed to kudzu ?

2. Boot the machine
3. /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is re-generated, with DHCP and
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is re-generated, with DHCP and onboot=yes.
Keep the original ifcfg-eth0 by some options passed to kudzu
Not really, no.
Could that be a possibility in the futuer kudzu ? Since sometimes it's not

Well, you can turn off kudzu if you don't want it touching network files - the

Sure. However, if possible, please consider to add an option that won't let
kudzu to re-generate network configurations and X configurations. This is very

This kudzu behavior is actually quite annoying with wireless devices. Kudzu
will overwrite the interface configuration, deleting any hand-entered encryption
Try the updates-testing kudzu - it should be fixed to not randomly misfire and
