Using host only networking with vmware seems to break rp3
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
The vmnet1:0 entry in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory seems to
break the initilization of rp3. When I load up rp3 swith gdb every time I
get the following stack.

[iprowell@improv iprowell]$ rpm -q rp3
I think that the : might be causing a problem.
Doing the following allowed rp3 to come up normally.
[root@improv network-scripts]# mv ifcfg-vmnet1:0 tmp.ifcfg-vmnet1:0
I think this rather directly implies that this interface config file is the
I'm almost certain that this is fixed in rp3-1.0.4 in Raw Hide
