Description Tim Waugh 2000-01-21 17:54:10 UTC
With text install I only got asked my hostname.  After rebooting my new
installation and typing netconf, I set eth0 to DHCP (from manual with empty
fields).  Activating that change causes a network reload, but that doesn't
start pump.  It should _restart_ network instead.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2000-01-22 11:03:59 UTC
The same problem occurs even if not using DHCP.  Starting with no network
configured (I didn't get the opportunity since I have an ISA card, but that's
another bug report), and then filling in the details in linuxconf, it just does
a network reload, despite the fact that the network hasn't even been started

Do our users have to reboot as often as Windows users?

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-06-05 16:24:21 UTC
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
