Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52506
redhat-config-network has zero tr0 support
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Description of Problem:
Using redhat-config-network you cannot configure token ring interfaces.
This is a feature regression from Red Hat 7.1, 7.0, and 6.2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-netowrk
2. Try to add a tr0 interface
No token ring choices exist.
For a token ring option to be present.
IBM lives and dies on token ring, still. Several other large companies do
as well. Without being able to configure TR support I cannot test it.
Token ring was not part of the feature set for the tool. It's a little late to
add new features now.
You should be able to do:
or set it up in anaconda.
netconfig is not available after a Laptop install.
Red Hat Hardware Compat charts list multiple brands of Token Ring but now there
are no tools to configure it as you can with Ehernet or other NICs?
Now appears to be fixed in redhat-config-network-0.7.5-2.
