    Ok, I only named HAL as that is what people have told me the problem is.
    I have been running this change on my boxs, without
    CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED since last July or so.

    But I don't use NetworkManager here for the most part, but I have tried
    this in the OpenSuse10.3 alpha releases and it seems to work just fine
    with whatever version of NetworkManager it uses.

    So perhaps it's some wrapper scripts somewhere? I think SuSE had some
    odd things hard coded somewhere that prevented 10.1 from working
    properly with this change.

    Ok, so I'll drop the HAL wording above, what should I say instead?

    thanks,
