as ya can probably guess i'm coming from debian/wheezy/kali i'm on Pentoo latest amd64 loving gentoo/pentoo
i'm used to sysv-rc-conf to disable networking upon boot, what i'm wanting to have is full control over networking,
everything "downed" or "disabled" upon boot, i'll unmerge wicd, nothing wrong with it, i just want to use the commandline
for all net connections,
if anyone else is doing this please post any links/suggestions you have for doing this plus
how you connect to the net whether enp3s0/wlo1 via command line
i'm still googling/reading up on rc-update etc. to learn the gentoo way
had a command suggested: set `rc_need="!net"` in /etc/rc.conf
not sure if that's what i want, googling up on it now...thanx
this is my rc-update -v show: http://bpaste.net/show/qhorb635Mx2g3ZPIfACs/

gonna work on this next few days, when i get it i'll post what i did up
the other thing want to work on is the Alfa 36H/NHA cards via aircrack-ng
not sure if it's a driver issue or version of aircrack, best i had the cards was on
aircrack-ng 1.1.1 kernel 2.6.36/ubuntu/natty via BackBox 2.05
do what i can to get that performance on gentoo

ah never mind on this coz gentoo doesn't support pentoo
so there ya go, i'll just read and figure it out myself like i always have

You can either use ip/ifconfig/iwconfig manually or configure the interfaces via their init scripts then invoke them manually. Whichever works best for your use case, even mixing between using the init scripts and not by which interface is being used, disabled, or managed.

Better to just enable loopback at boot and just not have the other network interfaces set to start automatically, no explicit calls for them during startup and no network manager setting them up for you. In short, you already have that part covered.

We still answer questions with common answers, if there is some pentoo specific approach being used or discussed in depth, then the topic would belong in Unsupported Software. As it is, there is little imperative to move it.

If you boot into runlevel 2 instead of 3 then networking isn't enabled and anything that depends on networking isn't enabled except for loopback.

Many services would need to be started or put into the nonetwork runlevel if you want them.

Do a "rc-status -a" to see what is in each level.

You should use rc_hotplug="!net" and keep rc_need="net" for services
If you prevent hotplug from starting net, but keep service that need net to start when net is need, you can prevent loading network, but still start ssh when network is start or start the network service if another service need it.
