Description of problem:
Following the instructions from :
my network connection dies after typing "brctl addif pan0 eth0".
The exact sequence :
brctl addbr pan0
ifconfig pan0 192.168.1.1
brctl setfd pan0 0
brctl stp pan0 disable
brctl addif pan0 eth0 <---- HERE is dead
I have to do "brctl delif pan0 eth0" to restore it again.
In /var/log/messages I get :
pan0: port 2(eth0) entering learning state
kernel: pan0: port 2(eth0) entering forwarding state
kernel: pan0: topology change detected, propagating
kernel: pan0: port 2(eth0) entering disabled state
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create bluetooth net connection (NAP)
2.ifconfig - here bnep0 appears with a valid network address 192.168.0.10
3.brctl addbr pan0
4.ifconfig pan0 192.168.1.1
5.brctl setfd pan0 0
6.brctl stp pan0 disable
7.brctl addif pan0 eth0 <---- HERE is dead
Actual Results: I have no network connection at all. My machine is
not visible from outside, I cannot reach anything.
Expected Results: I should have bridge between eth0 and bnep0 devices.
I should be able to browse from my PDA over this netwok connection.
I'm using bluez-utils-2.10-2.0.rh90.kde
This looks like a networking configuration or kernel problem. PAN appears to
have been working. Fedora initscripts should handle this a lot better nowadays.
