Description Hai Wu 2004-05-04 18:32:44 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
The following is the setting in my /etc/modules.conf:
alias eth0 tg3
alias eth1 tg3
alias eth2 e100
alias eth3 e100
options e100 e100_speed_duplex=4,4
alias bond0 bonding
options bond0 miimon=100 mode=1 downdeley=5000 updelay=1000
alias bond1 bonding
options bond1 -o miimon=100 mode=1

If using redhat-config-network to view the network settings, and then 
choose "File"->"Save" to save the current network settings, then this 
redhat-config-network program would go ahead and change the following 
line in /etc/modules.conf:
options bond1 -o miimon=100 mode=1
options bond1 miimon=100 mode=1

Notice it removes "-o" option, which would render the network bonding 
for bond1 fail, could be serious problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
redhat-config-network-tui-1.2.59-1, redhat-config-network-1.2.59-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
