CentOS = 6.6 - current updates
             KDE = 4.3.4
Network Manager = 0.8.1
            wicd = 1.7.0 (bzr-r552)

from what i have read in threads, it appears that 'wicd' is recommended
network controller over 'network manager'.

because of this, i installed wicd and tried to use.

i find this strange because i see problems when using 'wicd'.

in attempt to understand what and where problem may be, i have tried
various ways of checking for problem.

to post what i have found, i am posting in 6 parts to hopefully make
it easier for help in troubleshooting by breaking down what i have

comments and suggestions most welcome.

    recommended by whom ? rhel and therefore centos use network
    manager. wicd is used by arch and some other distributions... wicd
    is not available via the base centos repository, either.

    1) This mailing list is not a bug tracker.
    2) CentOS don't ship wicd
    3) Given the above your six individual posts about something not
    distributed by CentOS I'd consider as spam.

    On el6, unless doing WiFi in which case use NetworkManager, use the network
    service and edit the network configuration scripts. On el7 use

    If you have a problem with something else open bugs or check mailing lists
    for where you obtained the package from.

    Oh and keep in mind net-tools is deprecated so try your best to swap out
    your ifconfig, route, arp, netstat, etc commands for their iproute2
    equivalents (ip and ss in this case).
