How to setup persistent Static Routes in openSUSE 11.0


  1. I’ve not been able to add add a Route using Yast (text mode) on my server.

    The (A)dd button is not selectable when I am configured to Network Manager.

    In order to add a route, I had to switch to ifup – Traditional Method.

  2. Another question is how to add network routes through yast.

    I was able to add a single IP address, but when adding a network not sure what to put in the gateway.


    I want to add * U 0 0 0 eth0

    (This is the display from another server)

    But not sure what to put in the gateway field for example…

  3. Well, ok, now I feel kind of dumb. I was doing the route command, but when I did the route -n command, my routes showed up. I was able to add network routes by entering a hyphen (-) for the gateway.

  4. Thank you. That ifup-route stuff works perfectly 😀
