Description Stephen Warren 2008-11-25 19:01:05 EST
Description of problem:
Run system-config-network, edit the configuration for eth0, assign a static IP, e.g.:

Subnet mask:
Default gateway address:

Save the updated configuration. Now, view /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/ifcfg-eth0, and see that the gateway value has the wrong data (I think it's just a duplicate of the gateway field from memory).

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Pavel Rosenboim 2008-11-27 03:57:22 EST
I have the same problem. Netmask gets overwritten with value of gateway address.
Comment 2 Pavel Rosenboim 2008-11-27 05:04:18 EST
I have the same problem. Netmask is overwritten by value of default gateway.
