Description Keith Hornbaker 2003-01-21 03:47:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
I have two nic cards installed eth0=RealTek RTL-8139 SMC and eth1=AMD PCNET32.
eth0 is configured for DSL at 100mhz. eth1 is connected to a 10mhz local lan
using a static ip. Both cards were detected and installed correctly during the
installation, following installation both cards operated correctly. When Samba
didn't work a typo was discovered in the host name. Tried to fix the typo in X
with the Redhat Config tool which on the first attempt appeared to work, but
after a reboot found eth0 had been assigned the static ip of eth1 and eth1 was
inactive. Tried to set things back the way they were in X using the redhat
config tool but started having the network config program crashing and making no
updates (saved a copy of the dump file). The only way I could get eth0
configured for dsl again was to use ifconfig which the config tool now 
recognizes. I reconfigured eth1 with ifconfig but the config tool still sees it
as inactive after a reboot.   

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Setup system with multiple nic cards
2.Change host name with config tool 

Actual Results:  Network configuration changed on eth0 (static ip of eth1
assigned) and eth1 was made inactive

Expected Results:  System updated with new host name

please attach the dump file

I've got the same kind of thing, but this crashes when any change at all made 
when you try and save. This is under 7.2 with ver 0.9.10-2. Is there any 
prospect of a fix for a 7.2 network-config, or is it best just to try upgrading 
to 9.

Eg below:
