Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 320001
NetworkManager always uses DHCP (KDE live CD)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:17 EST
Description of problem:
I am using the KDE live CD test 3. I boot the CD and naturally get a DHCP
address. I install the OS and during install specify a static IPv4 address
(along with netmask, gateway, dns and hostname). I disable IPv6. After a
successful installation, I reboot and find that after I've created a user and
logged in, I'm still using DHCP. I run system-config-network and find it
configured for DHCP, my static settings lost. I reconfigure it and reboot.
After reboot, I am still using DHCP! I check /etc/sysconfig/network
and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and they are correctly
configured with my static address. The /etc/resolv.conf however is using the
DNS servers relevant to the DHCP network, not the ones I want. The
file /etc/hosts is non-existent!! I create it with a loopback address and a
single reference to my static address.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nm-applet version 0.70
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from Live CD. Configure static address.
3. Find self still using DHCP.
IP address always provided via DHCP when NetworkManager running.
NetworkManager should honour the information in the /etc/sysconfig/network*
Shutdown NetworkManager process and restart network configures the static
