On a machine with two NIC's, both assigned addresses via DHCP, one interface cannot get an address:

[root@localhost ~]# service network restart
Shutting down interface eth0:                              [  OK  ]
Shutting down interface eth1:                              [  OK  ]
Shutting down loopback interface:                          [  OK  ]
Bringing up loopback interface:                            [  OK  ]
Bringing up interface eth0:  
Determining IP information for eth0...dhclient(26102) is already running - exiting.

Comment 1 Larry Dillon 2007-11-08 20:36:21 EST
Works OK in Fedora 8 (final released version)
I can't say if this was fixed or was just a problem in the Live iso.
