What files or programs have the ability to change your default network scripts and co

What files or programs have the ability to change your default network scripts and config files? All 3 of these very important files got changed on their own.


/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-wlan0
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-wlan0

networkmanager is typically the culprit

If you are not using wireless or roaming, you can disable NM and use network

Why are you manually editing these config files ? You should not need to do so if you are using network manager and perhaps there is a better solution ?

Those files are HARD LINKS today. Editting them without understanding the implication is a recipe for error.
Use nm or system-config-manager.

If you MUST manually edit - the correct the links.

Somehow they got messed up . The network manager is not setting my dns so right now I have no choice .

nm won't set the dns for some reason. Any idea how to let system-config-manager let it set my dns? What are those files hardlinked to?
