CFS timer changes have been synced with what is upstream.
The next kernel will be out very shortly, it should be fixed.

Comment 4 Igor A Tarasov 2007-07-28 07:15:21 UTC
I have the same problem.
dhclient get DHCPINFORM message, but nothing happen then.
NetworkManager says that not reply received from DHCP server and interface 
configured using ZeroConf.

Even after manually configuration IP address on NIC, openvpn tunnel, based on 
UDP protocol, can't start :(

Comment 5 Peter Sabiniewicz 2007-07-28 20:34:53 UTC
I confirm the bug I am using FC 7 on Nforce 2 Mainboard ASUS A7N8X-X and i have
the same problem. IP adress is offered bye DHCP server (Cable Modem)but not
network card dont get IP adress.

Comment 6 Joachim Backes 2007-07-29 08:11:25 UTC
Having the same problem with my desktop PC (AMD, Athlon).

Additionally I found out: Booting to single user mode, then calling
"/etc/init.d/network start" by hand gets well an IP address by dhcp. But during
normalboot sequences (to init mode 3 or 5), it will hang. Race condition problem?

I can confirm that boots fine. 

Comment 7 Roman Danilov 2007-07-29 18:56:49 UTC
I am having this problem too.
Hardware is: VMWare Server 1.0.3

When booting, it is hang on "determining IP information for
eth0...". But if I choose old, it works fine.

Comment 8 CHIKAMA Masaki 2007-07-30 01:36:58 UTC
