LFS201 - Exercise 35.2 Nitpick
Minor nitpick but I find the answer to question 35.2 a bit odd. It's about why nmcli/nmtui is preferable to modifying files in /etc
Options A & B are not interesting but C &D are:
C. It avoids modifying distribution-dependent files in /etc
D. The use of nmtui and nmcli should be the same on all Linux distributions
In my view, both C and D are correct, but if I had to pick one I'd say C is more correct.
The course material seem to agree as on the "NIC Configuration Files" page, it is stated: "Each distribution has its own set of files and/or directories, and they may be slightly different, depending on your distribution version. When using systemd, it is preferable to use Network Manager, rather than try to configure the underlying text files."
While the rationale for D is softer (on the Network Manager page): "its use is hopefully almost the same on different systems".
Hardly of earth-shattering significance but if I'm wrong and D is clearly correct while C is not, it'd be interesting to get the rationale.
