Description of problem:
This bug is similar to Bug #63311, except it does not concern wireless
cards. I also have a Dell CPx laptop but am using a Xircom ethernet card. The
problem is that after suspending the network is lost -
it doesn't help to manually restart services like network, pcmcia or
kudzu - the interface eth0 simply won't be restored.
I have used the following workaround for this problem:
I edited /etc/sysconfig/apmd and changed the line
This fixed the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. check that network is working before suspend (i.e. eth0 is active)
2. suspend laptop
Actual Results: interface eth0 is down. trying to bring the interface up
manually (e.g. 'service network restart') or through RedHat's network tool
won't do it.
Expected Results: interface eth0 should be active again
Actually the solution I gave above still gives some intermittent
problems. Changing instead PCMCIARESTART to "yes", however, seems to
work perfectly well. Shouldn't this be the default value for that
Probably not; it's not really a problem for most laptops.
