upgrade from FC2 test1 to FC 2 messed up Network connection
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:45:31 EDT
Description of problem:
I upgraded from FC2 TEST1 to FC 2.
My static network info got trashed and my card (Netgear FA311 DP83815)
was unrecognised after the upgrade.
Fixed the problem using on KDE Network Configuration tool
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Only done once ! (and I'm not going back to a test release)
Steps to Reproduce:
I suspect the upgrade procedure is the issue as it was easy to fix
with Network Configuration tool.
