Description of problem:
After a reboot, my network interface was not brought up as it should have been.
graphical network configuration showed eth0 present but inactive. Attempting to activate it led to an error message about the configuration for eth0 not being found.
My initial guess at the problem seems to be that the configuration now lives in:
I modified network-functions need_config to look for the cfg file in this new location as a workaround.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Have a system with working eth0 configuration,
Let system automatically move cfg location
Expected Results: If the system is upgraded so that the config lives in a new location, all programs that expect to find that configuration file should look in the new location.
The config is supposed to live in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ ; if it's not
there, that's a problem.
Did you set up profiles?
Nope, not to my knowledge, but there are some files under profiles:
[root@noir ~]# find /etc/sysconfig/networking -type f
(the profiles/default/network file is empty)
The Profile menu of the gui network configuration shows "Common"
Have you checked the checkboxes in the first column?
CANTFIX without more information, closed due to inactivity.
