Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-21 17:54:10 UTC
With text install I only got asked my hostname.  After rebooting my new
installation and typing netconf, I set eth0 to DHCP (from manual with empty
fields).  Activating that change causes a network reload, but that doesn't
start pump.  It should _restart_ network instead.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2000-01-22 11:03:59 UTC
The same problem occurs even if not using DHCP.  Starting with no network
configured (I didn't get the opportunity since I have an ISA card, but that's
another bug report), and then filling in the details in linuxconf, it just does
a network reload, despite the fact that the network hasn't even been started
yet.

Do our users have to reboot as often as Windows users?

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
