Description David Gesswein 2008-06-30 01:38:37 UTC
Description of problem:
I have configured the Ethernet adapter to static IP through
system->administration->network but the system still configures the adapter
using DHCP. Not sure what component the bug report should be against. 

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

How reproducible:
I just installed FC9 then found it was setup for DHCP and changed it to static
using the GUI.  All components are updated to current as of today.

Additional info:

In system-config-network the GUI check box controlled by NetworkManager is not
selected but from /var/log/messages appears that it is being controlled by
network manager.

Comment 2 David Gesswein 2008-06-30 02:14:12 UTC
I got it to stop configuring with network manager by checking the controlled by
NetworkManager box, exiting then unchecking it. Now even though I have activate
device when computer starts it does not activate the device.  If I manually
activate it I do get the static IP address. I tried checking and unchecking the
activate at boot but it has no effect.

Comment 3 David Gesswein 2008-06-30 02:34:49 UTC
Found the next piece of the puzzle.  Under system->administration->services it
said that network was running but disabled.  When I set it to enabled then eth0
properly configures static IP on boot.

Now I have the issue where firefox always starts in offline mode even though the
network is functional.

Comment 4 Dan Williams 2008-07-02 23:00:39 UTC
Updates in f9-updates would likely have fixed your issue without having to
revert to the 'network' service.  If you'd like to debug the issue with
NetworkManager further we can do that, but if you want to stick with the
'network' service for now (since that's working for you) that's OK too.
