Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 197948
gateway not set after dhcp
Last modified: 2008-05-06 12:05:03 EDT
Description of problem:
When I use the Network Configuration GUI, some network parameter are not setted
when changing from a static address to DHCP.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am using an up to date FC5.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set a static address configuration with the Network Configuration GUI and
enable the interface
2. Reset now with DHCP
I get correctly the IP from the DHCP server, but not the gateway. My
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file still contain the old static setting.

This problem was already discussed here:
it seems to be that the problem still isn't fixed (at least for x86_64), will
this bug ever on the focuss of some developer?
Thanks in advance,
still? I thought, I fixed this for FC-6 ... hmm, time for an update release for FC-5
this would be perfect, at the moment I have no time to update my Fedora-machines
