User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.2
Description of problem:
In the GUI Network Configuration if there is information in the Static Route fields, DHCP will not get the Gateway information from the DHCP server. DHCP negotiates the IP address, DNS servers, and everything else, but does not get the new Gateway.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enter information into the "Statically Set IP Address" boxes
2. Automatically obtain information from DHCP (including DNS)
3. bring the interfaces down, then up
Actual Results: I no longer received the gateway via dhcp
Expected Results: selecting 'automatically obtain information from DHCP' should do just that and ignore the values found in the 'statically set' area.
This issue should be resolved with dhcp-3.0.1-42 in FC-3 updates.
Unless the DHCLIENT_USE_GATEWAY variable is set, dhclient-script
will ignore the static GATEWAY setting .
