I use Ubuntu 12.04.1.
I understand networking, and the meaning of files in both folders, but the question is:
"How are they coexisting?"
For example, if I have this configuration of
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.0.2 gateway 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.0.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255
and this one in
[802-3-ethernet] duplex=full mac-address=00:1E:33:71:CD:A4 [connection] id=eth0 uuid=4c12ff66-028a-4338-bad5-fa6e9c5e6939 type=802-3-ethernet [ipv6] method=auto [ipv4] method=manual dns=192.168.0.1; addresses1=192.168.0.1;24;192.168.0.1;
What will be the resulting address of the interface,
192.168.0.2, and why so ?
