Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 306601
setuptool under x86_64 is missing nameserver information under Network Setup
Last modified: 2009-01-20 16:54:20 EST
Description of problem:
Under 5 i386 when using "setup" to setup networking, you are asked if you want
to set up networking and get a form where you can enter IP address, network
mask, default gateway and the primary nameserver's ip address.
Under x86_64 you are asked to chose the network device you want to setup and are
asked for the name of the device, the device itself, the static ip, the netmask
and the default gateway's IP address, but you cannot enter name server
So if you rely on this tool, you end up with a broken resolv.conf, as no
nameserver information is put into there.
Setting up DHCP works, if you have a dhcp server running.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
setuptool-1.19.2-1.el5.centos.x86_64 (branding has been removed from that)
Run setup on an x86_64 RHEL 5 machine
This bug has been entered into the centos bug tracker, see
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=1910 for more information.
On both architectures, it looks like setuptool is launching
/usr/sbin/system-config-network-tui, moving to that package.
Reassigning to component owner.
Proposing for RHEL-5.3 but waiting for developer review for ACK.

* DNS addresses could not be manually entered in either the GUI or text interfaces. This meant that no DNS could be specified if a static IP was used or if DHCP failed to retrieve DNS information. This updated version of system-config-network allows DNS addresses to be set in both graphical and text mode.
