Description Alexandre Gomes 2004-12-09 11:19:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
I've a laptop with static IP. When using it offline I login into
gnome, then the applet seems to make a loop trying to connect. I make
Shutdown/Restart/Logout and gnome delay from 0 to 3-5minutes before it
goes down.
If I kill the applet the system makes what I asked in that exact moment.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a static IP
2. Start gnome and make logout

Actual Results:  Delay in logout

Expected Results:  Instant logout

Additional info:

This bug made me to force shutdown, as me if there are others, this is
a High Severity bug since it can make people think that pc crashed and
try to force a shudown.

Another way of "killing" the delay is to do a /sbin/ifdown eth0

Comment 2 Alexandre Gomes 2004-12-20 14:32:28 UTC
Another way of "killing" the delay is to do a /sbin/ifdown eth0,
This should be done by fedora when no cable is present.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

rhn-applet was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5.  Only FC5
and FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security
fixes only.  If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please
change the product to Fedora Extras and the version to match.  If you can verify
that the bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version

The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.

We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now.  The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.

Note that rhn-applet may still be present on upgraded systems, and in general
will not function correctly on such systems.  That is not a bug; anaconda does
not generally erase removed packages upon upgrades.
