Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 66197
redhat-control-network doesnt work as unpriviledged user
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
I am running redhat-config-network-1.0.0-1 and am trying to use
redhat-control-network to start and stop ethernet and modem interfaces. Even
though the interfaces are set so that all users should be able to start and stop
them, I am unable to start interfaces as an unprivileged user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a network interface using neat and check the allow users to start and
2. start redhat-control-network as an unpriviledged user
3. try to start the interface.
returns "Users aren't allowed to start this interface" in the xterm.
interface should start.
I would be happy to send any sysconfig files that might be relevant.
please attach the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-THEUSERDEVICE file
Fixed in the 7.3 initscripts. Please updated redhat-config-network and
initscripts and resulting dependancies to the current release, that should fix
Read ya, Phil
