Description Pedro Miguel Marques Morais 2002-02-25 14:18:17 EST
Description of Problem:
If you press CTRL + C while fetching a dhcp address, you abort the
whole init process.

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure your network card to use dhcp
2. Unplug the network cable
3. Wait until the interface is started; it will hang a bit waiting for the 
   dhcp reply
4. Imagine you're bored, and know that the network cable is out, so you
   decide to press CTRL + C

Actual Results:

The init sequence seems to stop; X starts immediatly in a state that 
eventually locks the computer.

Expected Results:

Nothing OR only dhcp probe cancelled

What happens if you install SysVinit-2.84-1 from rawhide?
Comment 2 Pedro Miguel Marques Morais 2002-02-27 09:59:45 EST
Fixed by SysVInit from rawhide. CTRL+C gets ignored.
