Description Jan ONDREJ 2008-05-20 09:29:38 EDT
Description of problem: I have no IPv4 address after boot of Fedora 9. I am using dhcp (dhclient) to get IP addresses for my notebook. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): initscripts-8.76.2-1.i386 dhclient-4.0.0-15.fc9.i386 How reproducible: Always, same for me and my colleague. Steps to Reproduce: 1. boot fedora 9 with DHCP enabled Actual results: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:03:0D:4D:78:00 inet6 addr: xxxx:4118:400:1:203:dff:fe4d:7800/64 Scope:Global inet6 addr: fe80::203:dff:fe4d:7800/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:10362 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:288 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:716375 (699.5 KiB) TX bytes:43707 (42.6 KiB) Interrupt:16 Expected results: Working IPv4 network.

My IP address is received properly, but next time dropped. I can repair my IP address by killing and restarting dhclient process or just by running another "dhclient -d eth0". This behaviour is after updating to Fedora 9, on Fedora 8 there was no problems. My ifcfg-eth0: # Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8055 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=dhcp HWADDR=00:03:0D:4D:78:00 ONBOOT=yes DHCP_HOSTNAME=note.salstar.sk TYPE=Ethernet USERCTL=yes IPV6INIT=yes # these 3-4 parameters are required to set my own DNS servers PEERDNS=yes RESOLV_MODS=yes DNS1=127.0.0.1 #DNS2=188.8.131.52 SElinux is in permissive mode.

Can you configure the interface manually using ifconfig? Does it work if you do that?
Comment 2 Jan ONDREJ 2008-08-04 03:06:23 EDT
I think this problem has been solved by latest updates (I am using updates-testing repository on my notebook).
