Description Trey Earl 2008-10-04 15:43:18 EDT
Description of problem:
After an install of the F10 beta LiveCD, NetworkManager refuses to connect to any network with DHCP. While in the LiveCD session, however, it seems to work fine. If I 'ifup eth0' (bypassing NetworkManager) it also works, however many GUI apps these days seem to require NM.

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

How reproducible:
Unknown... its working right now... although I had similar problems with f9 too, so I'd say relatively easily reproduced.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F10 beta
2. Notice it doesn't connect to any network
3. Assign static ips and watch it work with no issues.
Actual results:

Expected results:

is this still an issue with latest rawhide NM svn4175 or later?
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-11-25 22:33:08 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

I have still problems with NetworkManager in F-10. The problem is that after hibernation or restart isn't received ip from dhcp. 
The version is NetworkManager-, so can't say if it's more or less than svn4175.

If I completely disable NetworkManager and enable service network then the ip is granted. So this could be problem of how NetworkManager ask for dhcp. If you suggest trying latest from NM from rawhide, I can try.

Yeah, that would be good, otherwise if you're in Westford, come over to my desk (2nd floor Desktop area) and I can try to debug it directly.

NetworkManager- works for me. Great, thanks. It's working after reboot and also after hibernation.
