None at all so long as it could be just as easily restored if needed?

As previously indicated all I need is to stop it if ever cli is needed again (it doesn't interfere in gui).

I think all you need to do to restore it is

Code: Select all

ifconfig eth0 up


I still wonder if you have a wireless connection in cli mode. It might be that when you leave X, you lose the wireless connection, so network manager {or whatever it is that M8 uses} tries to make a connection with whatever other interfaces are available, eth0 in this case -- if it's enabled/"up".

Thanks - though it doesn't really matter now so long as the above works if needed - which it shouldn't be!

[As a matter of interest, whilst ferreting about in a couple of other distro installs (in a search for a solution to another unrelated objective which I may also try in Mepis), the output of dmesg I noticed that the eth0:auto-negotiating is going on...!]
