Anything about Ubuntu, Centos, openSuSe and Fedora
As of Ubuntu 10.10, I find network-manager problematic, since it alters the static IP address you’ve configured in /etc/network/interfaces. This is even though you successfully configured the static IP address and stuff. Network-Manager still override them with and use the IP the DHCP had given.
So for now my only fix is to uninstall network-manager and packages related to it.
#> sudo apt-get purge network-manager network-manager-gnome
After this, the static IP address configured in /etc/network/interfaces will be working fine.
