Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-06-26 08:54:54 EDT
HWADDR="00:50:04:71:8D:89" would be the correct entry...
Did you name your config file ifcfg-eth0:MACADDR ??
Comment 2 Cyril Zlachevsky 2002-06-26 10:55:27 EDT
2 harald@redhat.com : Offcause no!
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2002-06-26 12:12:45 EDT
fixed in CVS
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-07-24 12:54:27 EDT
Please try the public beta - upgrade from Rawhide if necesarry. 1.1.10 has the
fix, wthough it was added somewhat earlier.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2002-10-23 05:56:54 EDT
first beta of erratum is available at:

Most of the bugs reported have been removed, but as in every software change,
there could be new bugs introduced.

Please report bugs against this with explicitly stating the 1.0.1 version... Thx
and please test.
