Comment 1 Evaldas 2007-07-29 17:07:58 EDT
a problem with dhcp-3.0.3-28 in FC5
if a fixed ip get into Address ranges, then everything works
Comment 2 Krzysztof Rzadca 2007-07-30 13:06:39 EDT
I confirm this bug with the same kernel/dhclient version. dhclient does not work
on both network interfaces (iwl3945 wifi and r8169 ethernet).

This is happening to me too, on a number of different machines.

Others are experimenting this bug too, please see

I'd rather change this to high priority, because it can render one's system
unusable (or, at least, you may easily lose remote control of it).

I suspect this is not selinux-related, because I did a full relabelling and it
won't help.

Comment 4 Evaldas 2007-08-01 15:21:35 EDT
it works fine with kernel
(selinux is switched off in my fedora)
