Description Michael Ringenberg 2001-09-24 18:50:35 UTC
Description of Problem:
After a clean installation of roswell, I was unable to get ipx networking working 
when I specified a Frame type and network number via linuxconf or by hand 
editting /etc/sysconfig/network and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 
and turning IPXAUTOPRIMARY and IPXAUTOFRAME off.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-6.20-1

How Reproducible:
Every Time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Configure ipx networking to use a specified frame type and network 
number using linuxconf or by hand editting /etc/sysconfig/network and 
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0.
2. run /etc/init.d/network restart
3. run ncpmount -S SERVER dir

Actual Results:
ncpmount: Cannot assign requested address when trying to find SERVER

Expected Results:
a clean mount of the SERVER at dir

Additional Information:
 Copying /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-ipx from a RedHat linux 7.1 
system where the mounting works to my system fixed the problem.

If IPXAUTOFRAME and IPXAUTOPRIMARY are on, then it will connect, but I 
get a lot of error messages complaining about network collisions.

Fixed in a later initscripts.
