Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2003:183 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Updated redhat-config-network package available 2003-08-11 04:00:00 UTC

Description Jan Moren 2003-04-29 18:39:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021209

Description of problem:
I have two profiles set up for the same network card (three, really, but
apparently the Common profile should be unused). When trying to activate the
device, nothing happens, unless I first do a change (any change) and save the
profile first. Switching between profiles does not help. Using
redhat-config-network-cmd to activate the device always yields just a dump of
all network parameters.

This bug was present for me in the previous version as well (the one shipping
with rh9), but I used neat to choose profiles and activate the network. With
this version, however, neat throws an exception no matter what I do (i'm filing
a separate bug on this), so this issue - which I'd just about forgotten about,
suddenly became a bit more urgent. This issue was not present in rh8.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two profiles for the same device
2. Save, reboot, log in
3. run redhat-network-control and try to activate the currently selected profile

Actual Results:  nothing

Expected Results:  activate the device

fixed in 1.2.4-3

Comment 2 Jan Moren 2003-05-05 09:30:56 UTC
Nope, the new version doesn't fix it. Instead, now not even making a change will
make the tool activate the network. I can get the network to start just fine
using ifup directly, so the basic config is at least functional.

Comment 3 Jan Moren 2003-05-07 15:00:55 UTC
1.2.6 fixes it.
