Description Joe Harrington 2001-02-01 02:14:55 UTC
When switching profiles from home to office, activating the changes
restarts xinetd but not the network, so the IP isn't updated.  This worked
in RH 6.2.



Comment 1 Joe Harrington 2002-03-08 16:28:25 UTC
Hey this is still a problem in 7.2!  How come nobody's looking at it?  It's been
over a *year* this has sat here untouched.

The problem is that /etc/rc.d/init.d/network reload is what's run by linuxconf,
but that doesn't change the IP address.  You have to do a restart to get that to
happen.  (or, it's a bug in /etc/rc.d/init.d/network that reload doesn't do it,
but in that case please just  reassign this bug to that component.  I don't know
which is the case.)

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
