Right. Here are a couple of examples that I probably should have put in
my original reply:
This tells Network Manager to leave this interface alone.
OK, you can mess with it.
That is correct, but let me point out the '1'
can be added.
So with the combination of the above, this is a valid, 'don't mess with this after its up' ifcfg-eth0 file that will do everything needful.
If you always use eth0 the same way, NM will do the right thing with this type of config.
There is additional syntax available as well, and that is why I suggested the 'new' Network Device Control' application. You can fuss with that and look at the results in the config file[s].
