Description Gerald Teschl 2002-12-04 10:02:21 EST
Not sure what neat-control is supposed to do. I just started it and
it gives me an empty list of network devices even tough I have
a (configured and working) network card?
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-12-16 04:41:05 EST
Hmm, what does /usr/sbin/neat display?
Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2002-12-16 07:27:21 EST
neat displays my (single) ethernet card. No problems here.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2002-12-16 07:59:39 EST
is it activated in the profile?
Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2002-12-16 14:50:12 EST
Yes. The interface is listed as "Active".

OK. Did some further testing. This is a differnt box with two
network cards.

I run it from the GUI and nothing showed up in the list.

I run it as root on the command line and got

[root@tomcat root]# Copying ifcfg-eth0 to devices and putting it into the
default profile.
Copying ifcfg-eth1 to devices and putting it into the default profile.
Copying /etc/hosts to default profile.
Copying /etc/resolv.conf to default profile.

and now both eth0 and eth1 show up (this is a different box with two network

If I now open it from the GUI (i.e. without root privelidges) it
shows eth0 but not eth1!?

Just tired again with redhat-config-network-1.1.96-1:

Now neat-control works as root, but if I start it as user I get
tons of "Error copying ... permission denied" errors and only eth0 (but not eth1)
shows up.
