Description of problem:
If I during a session is running KDE and i lock the desktop or log out, when i log in/activate the session again the network connection is gone. I try to run "/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart" but to no help. While shutting network down ther is no mention of eth0, but while bringing network up it stops at eth0.
The NIC is an "3c900 10BaseT [Boomerang]". Note, this behavior does not happen on my laptop "Compaq Armada 1750"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Lock desktop/log out amd restart session/log in again.
Actual Results: The network connection is lost.
Expected Results: Networ shoulld still be availibale/active.
Unless you can tell me how to reproduce the problem on any system, there's not
much I can do to solve it.
It's also very unlikely that the DHCP server (component 'dhcp') has anything to
do with this.
Are now running Beta2 with the same behaviour. I do not either belive it's
DHCPD that is causing the problem (there were just not the option "Other").
On my Beta2 system I've also tried to restart the network connection
with "/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart". It will shut down the network but
while initiating eth0 (configured with DHCP) it just stops. So it looks like it
is loosing connection and then are unable to update/recive new ip adress from
the DHCP server.
I've checked that the NIC module is still loaded and it is.
Hope this information helps extra.
I've checked and confirmed that the process dhcpd is terminatet during the
events described before. So I fell that dhcpd is somewhat involved. And it is
not possible to restart the dhcpd without reboot.
