/sbin/ifdown eth0 goes into an infinite loop, either run manually or on

Comment 3 Frank Sweetser 2001-09-09 02:01:08 UTC
Just tried it with the HWADDR line commented out of ifcfg-eth0, works fine.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-09 08:15:39 UTC
I *believe* this is fixed in 6.37-1 and later. Does it continue with that version?

Comment 5 Frank Sweetser 2001-09-10 13:03:31 UTC
Yup - works fine with 6.39-1 out of rawhide.
