Last modified: 2009-06-11 03:42:22 EDT
Description of problem: After booting, ip address doesn't set for my network
card. I tried and dhcp and static ip address. After this, I do:
service network restart
If ip address is static all became good. If I use dhcp I see error, but eth0

Workaround is disable NetworkManager
I assume you're using static IP configuration? Could you attach your
Also, could you update to the latest NM in f9-updates-testing (svn3675 I
believe) as this fixes a few issues with reading the configuration you've set up
I tried both variants. My current configuration:
I updated from fedora 7 and it was static ip.
I'm trying package from testing.
I got NetworkManager-glib-0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3675.fc9.i386.rpm and
NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3675.fc9.i386.rpm, upgraded and rebooted. Booting
is ok, eth0 was upped. But, I did "service network restart", I have seen message
about error below.
I try static ip also.
I checked static ip, it works good on starting. On restarting, there is messages:
Shutting down interface eth0: [OK]
Shutting down loopback interface: [OK]
Bringing up loopback interface: [OK]
Bringing up interface eth0: RTNETLINK answers: File exists
Error adding address 192.168.1.103 for eth0.
If you're allowing NetworkManager to control the interface, then you don't need
to use the 'network' service for that interface. You can add:
to the ifcfg file to indicate which service (either NetowrkManager or network)
should control the device.
Please reopen if the suggestions in comment #7 don't work for you.
if u want to config ur eth manually no need to use network manager :
1) /sbin/chkconfig --level 0123456 NetworkManager off
2) use NM_CONTROLLED=no in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (as Williams said)
3)i assumed ur network service start level is set in ur boot run-level .
