Description of problem:

Cannot assign a fixed ip address

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a fixed ip address in the network guie
2.  Stop Network
3. Start Network

Actual results:

4. Network gets ip address from dhcpd

Expected results:

4. Network gets ip address from fixed

Additional info:

ip address looks ok before login in ( cntrl alt f1 before login ) but when you
log in through the X server the ip address changes
Comment 1 Dan Williams 2007-11-20 11:10:18 EST
Likely NetworkManager; if you want to use static IP addressing for the moment,
you should probably disable NM with:

sudo /sbin/chkconfig NetworkManager off
sudo rpm -e NetworkManager-gnome
