NetworkManager should support aliased interfaces

Bug #288322 reported by Simon Ruggier on 2008-10-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
network-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

I like for my laptop to have a static IP address when connected to certain networks, which happen to be connected via ethernet interface, so I have the following snippet in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf:
alias {
  interface "eth0";
  #option subnet-mask;

I've had to avoid using NetworkManager in order for this functionality to work, because it doesn't have any support for slave interfaces. This has caused problems of its own, and means that my ethernet interface doesn't bring itself up automatically.

Ideally, I'd be able to configure a fixed IP address that works with NetworkManager, and not have to deal with getting /etc/network/interfaces and NetworkManager to coexist.
