system-config-network corrupts network settings
Last modified: 2008-12-15 05:40:40 EST
Description of problem:
After entering static IP data in system-config-network, saving it, and restarting the tool, the reported data is different from the one entered
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start system-config-network
2. edit properties for eth0
3. select "statically set ip addresses"
4. enter address: 192.168.1.100, netmask 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.1.1
8. restart system-config-network
netmask is set to 192.168.1.1
If the network is restarted (/etc/init.d/...), the broadcast is set at 192.168.1.100 and the only route added is a route to the host itself (192.168.1.100) - which is nonsense.
