Re: Still unable to restart networking on Debian 9 text mode only

Good morning Rob,
Your message is what i am expecting to receive...

Please don't judge me if you are a dedicated developer of Debian. I
love and I am using it since the first versions, but I never come to
this list because I am not welcome in groups in my life, and will be
no different here. And i promisse I you get out from here the faster
as I can, I just can't believe what you are doing to Debian...

In older Debian versions, I am able to just do this:
#vi /etc/network/interfaces
#at 20:00
>ifdown eth0
>sleep 10
>ifup eth0

Debian must have a option during the installation a option like
"Legacy mode"  that install sysvinit, net-tools, and etc this will
make everyone here happy.

Best regards and thank you for freely supporting me.
Now, im just gone.
