network-scripts - Legacy scripts for manipulating of network devices

This package contains the legacy scripts for activating & deactivating of most network interfaces. It also provides a legacy version of 'network' service.
The 'network' service is enabled by default after installation of this package, and if the network-scripts are installed alongside NetworkManager, then the ifup/ifdown commands from network-scripts take precedence over the ones provided by NetworkManager.

If user has both network-scripts & NetworkManager installed, and wishes to use ifup/ifdown from NetworkManager primarily, then they has to run command:

$ update-alternatives --config ifup


Please note that running the command above will also disable the 'network' service.
