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):
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
Actual results: Network is disabled.
Expected results: Network should work as before.
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.
This is now working with NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.11.svn4022.4.fc9. There are still a few strange aspects but not important.
