system-config-network-1.5.93-2.fc10.noarch GUI ignores Netmask value and replaces it with value of gateway address
Last modified: 2008-12-07 13:55:32 EST
Description of problem:
I try to configure eth0 to be a static address and put a value in for the various fields including Netmask. I put in 255.255.255.0 for the netmask and 192.168.0.1 for the gateway. I save the settings and activate the interface only to notice that both the netmask and the gateway are set to the value I gave the gateway address.
I opened up the system-config-network again and see that the netmask field contains the gateway value. I change it, save, and exit the program. I open it back up and again... the netmask is set to 192.168.0.1 the value of the gateway. I'm assuming there is a typo in the source where both fields refer to the same variable?!?
As a result of this bug I was unable to configure my network and had to edit the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 by hand and put the correct value in for the netmask.
I checked another machine and was able to duplicate the bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Open system-config-network and try to manually configure a network card.. and put in a value for netmask... it gets replace by the gateway address.
This should accept the value given to it and retain it.
