Description of problem:
After installing the latest updates and rebooting, the network is disabled and the network interfaces can't be activated from the gui interface (greyed out).  Running `ifup eth0' as root starts the network but it gets disabled again soon after.

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


How reproducible:
So far only on one host.  This host has a static IP address configured.  Hosts using dhcp aren't showing this problem.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure host with static IP and static name server configuration
2. Install latest NetworkManager update
3. reboot
Actual results:  Network is disabled.

Expected results:  Network should work as before.

Additional info:
After downgrading to NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.9.4.svn3675.fc9.x86_64, it's working fine again.  There was a kernel upgrade also but the new NetworkManager doesn't work with either kernel, the previous works with both kernels.

This host has a second network card which is not normally active.  Both are disabled with the new NetworkManager, both enabled with the previous.
Comment 1 Ian Mortimer 2008-10-13 18:34:38 EDT
This is now working with NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.11.svn4022.4.fc9.  There are still a few strange aspects but not important.
