Description Stef Walter 2012-09-19 08:17:26 EDT
Description of problem:

When I click the 'OFF' next to 'Ethernet (eth0)' in the NETWORK CONFIGURATION panel, the state goes to 'Connecting' for a while, and then goes back to OFF, and tries again. It never connects.

This is in a virtual machine with the 'Red Hat, Inc Virtio network device'. This works in other similar virtual machines with previous versions of Fedora. 

In addition 'dhclient eth0' hangs for a while and produces no output.

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

Fedora 18-Alpha
