Description Bob Agel 2008-02-07 08:37:40 EST
Description of problem: During installation Roadrunner cable internet connection
properly configured.  After update 2/6/08, no internet connection and
system-config-network cannot restart it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Rawhide (Fedora 9

How reproducible: Installation from DVD, normal updates; groupinstalled KDE but
no other new packages. 

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: Since update 2/6/08, eth0 cannot connect to internet. 
System-config-network fails with 'double free or corruption' and a backtrace
dump.  On advice of Rahul, I've first tried changing SELinux to Permissive mode
and even tried disabling it.  No change.  Network settings in
system-config-network are identical to working config in Fedora 8.

For help in identifying the problem, I've attached a sysreport and also updates
from 2/6

Expected results:

This looks more like bug in dhclient... So try to update (maybe downgrade) to 
another version. Assigning to dhclient.
Comment 6 Bob Agel 2008-02-08 08:28:09 EST
Jiri, you've nailed it.  There's a problem with the dhclient-4.0.0-7.fc9x86_64
and returning to the dhclient-4.0.0-6.fc9x86_64 (grabbed from the mirrors and
then installed with 'rpm -Uvh --force' allows system-config-network to restart
my connection.
Comment 7 David Cantrell 2008-02-08 14:18:45 EST
This is fixed in dhcp-4.0.0-9.fc9 and later.
