Description Karel Volný 2013-01-17 16:33:55 UTC
Description of problem:
I have some troubles using NetworkManager, so I need to stop it - just stop it, not to disable it completely. This deosn't work, systemd keeps starting it again and again and again ...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
systemd-197-1.fc18.1.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service NetworkManager stop
2. wait a few (tenths of) seconds
3. service NetworkManager status
  
Actual results:
NM is running

Expected results:
NM is not running

Additional info:

Presumably a DBus client of NM causes its reactivation. Does it help if you disable just the DBus activation of NM?:
 rm /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service
 systemctl daemon-reload
