I met a strange case.
I DLed a copy of RH6.1 and installed it on my PC.
In installation, everything is ok
 even if talked to the DHCP server for hiring an IP.
but after reboot, it hangup during
BuildUp the network interface eth0!
I skiped it and try to trace. I found it happened during
executing 'pump'!
It has no problem when I installed RH5.2/6.0 on it before.
Now I had to use static IP address.

I've installed RedHat 6.1 today and I'm having the same problem !
The only solution I found so far is to use static IP. During
install, BOOTP worked ok. How is it possible to trace the rc.d scripts
? Is there any debug setting ?

First Boot hangs bringing up ETH0

boot: linux -s
and edit

Reboot...System comes up....
If I do
ifup eth0
It hangs with on pump hitting 100% CPU after displaying:

Funny thing....

dhcpcd works just fine....I put that in another script .

The bug is still with pump....

ftp://people.redhat.com/ewt/pump-0.7.6/. Please reopen this bug if it
does not fix your problem.
