Description Robin Green 2008-02-27 08:08:03 EST
I have 3 profiles (including Common). I ignore the Common profile, and don't use
it. Whenever I run system-config-network, the checkboxes for one of my profiles
(not Common), are set incorrect (looks like they're set for Common instead of
that profile).

However, when you actually click the checkbox that should be unchecked, to
uncheck it, nothing happens. When you click it a second time, it gets unchecked.
I figured out that the program thinks the checkbox is in the off state, but it
is actually *displaying* as checked.

So my educated guess is, for some reason, it's displaying the checkboxes for the
Common profile, but it thinks it's displaying the checkboxes for the currently
active profile.

If I manually fix this by clicking twice in each checkbox that is displaying
wrong, it stays fixed, until I quit and run system-config-network again.

I am not sure if this actually affects the profiles themselves, i.e. I'm not
sure if it's just a display bug, or if the profiles get saved incorrectly.

Common defines what all profiles have in common, so you can specify interfaces
Comment 2 Robin Green 2008-02-27 08:48:24 EST
Yes, I am aware of that. However, the bug is that when the *active* profile is
let's say, Home, apparently the checkboxes for Common are displayed.

Sorry I didn't have time to look at this earlier. I am no longer seeing this
with the latest version.
