Last modified: 2008-10-02 11:05:29 EDT
Description of problem:
After adding a host in system-config-network and deactivate eth1 and activate eth1 again, then NetworkManager shows no connection.
After rebooting then network connection has to be activated manually with system-config-network.
NetworkManager never shows connection.
Firefox, Evolution, Epiphany are in offline mode after reboot,
even thought they are stared after network
( internet connection ( wiered )) has been activated .
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Add host in system-config-network.
deactivate eth1 and activate eth1.
NetworkManager shows no connection.
After reboot. No internet connection.
NetworkManager ( applet in upper right corner )to show connection when there is internet connection.
I have repeated this problem in FC10 many times.
can you please check /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0 for line NM_CONTROLLED. I guess it's the same problem as in rhbz#459017 because if there's no line NM_CONTROLLED then s-c-n take it as NO and NetworkManager as yes. So if you deactivate and activate device via s-c-n and let s-c-n save the new configuration it writes NM_CONTROLLED=no to ifcfg-* file and that's why NM doesn't handle the device... You can to edit your eth1 config with s-c-n and check the "Controlled by NetworkManager" option.
