Comment 3 Frank Sweetser 2001-09-08 22:01:08 EDT
Just tried it with the HWADDR line commented out of ifcfg-eth0, works fine.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-09 04:15:39 EDT
I *believe* this is fixed in 6.37-1 and later. Does it continue with that version?
Comment 5 Frank Sweetser 2001-09-10 09:03:31 EDT
Yup - works fine with 6.39-1 out of rawhide.
