Description Warren Togami 2008-03-13 16:17:23 EDT
[root@caprica ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
# Intel Corporation 82540EP Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Mobile)

I deleted "Auto Ethernet" from gconf.

Bug: Plugging in Ethernet cable still automatically connects despite ONBOOT=no.
 This is a bug according to dcbw.

Dan figured out that this happens because inotify is watching the file in
/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles instead of network-scripts/, meaning inotify
only triggers a re-parse of the ifcfg file if system-config-network made the
change which then hardlinks the file from the profile into network-scripts/.  He
is considering having NM look directly at network-scripts but there were other
issues having to do with search domain and hostname that need to be figured first.

Dan this should be fixed now right?
Comment 3 Dan Williams 2008-03-25 09:09:10 EDT
Yeah, should be fixed in latest koji F9 NM to read from
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/, not from /.../profiles/default, which was the
issue here.
