Description Scott Russell 2001-08-24 14:35:56 UTC
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):


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start redhat-config-netowrk
2. Try to add a tr0 interface

Actual Results:

No token ring choices exist.

Expected Results:

For a token ring option to be present.

Additional Information:

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.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-24 14:48:34 UTC
Token ring was not part of the feature set for the tool. It's a little late to
add new features now.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-24 18:20:59 UTC
You should be able to do:

netconfig --device=tr0

or set it up in anaconda.

Comment 3 Scott Russell 2001-08-24 18:45:27 UTC
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?

Comment 4 Scott Russell 2001-08-24 22:29:15 UTC
Now appears to be fixed in redhat-config-network-0.7.5-2.

Thanks much.
