Networking Set-up

You may change the system hostname in /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts. This change should take effect after the next reboot.

If you have build KaarPux according to the instructions, your network interface will be handled directly by systemd-networkd, which is started automatically by systemd.


Alternative: Network Manager

As an alternative to systemd-networkd you can use NetworkManager (see KaarPux Package: NetworkManager) with the NetworkManager Applet (see KaarPux Package: network-manager-applet).

To disable systemd-networkd and enable NetworkManager instead:

systemctl stop systemd-networkd
systemctl disable systemd-networkd
systemctl enable NetworkManager
systemctl start NetworkManager
