Description Gerald Teschl 2002-12-04 15:02:21 UTC
Not sure what neat-control is supposed to do. I just started it and
it gives me an empty list of network devices even tough I have
a (configured and working) network card?

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2002-12-16 09:41:05 UTC
Hmm, what does /usr/sbin/neat display?

Comment 2 Gerald Teschl 2002-12-16 12:27:21 UTC
neat displays my (single) ethernet card. No problems here.

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2002-12-16 12:59:39 UTC
is it activated in the profile?

Comment 4 Gerald Teschl 2002-12-16 19:50:12 UTC
Yes. The interface is listed as "Active".

OK. Did some further testing. This is a differnt box with two
network cards.

I run it from the GUI and nothing showed up in the list.

I run it as root on the command line and got

[root@tomcat root]# Copying ifcfg-eth0 to devices and putting it into the
default profile.
Copying ifcfg-eth1 to devices and putting it into the default profile.
Copying /etc/hosts to default profile.
Copying /etc/resolv.conf to default profile.

and now both eth0 and eth1 show up (this is a different box with two network

If I now open it from the GUI (i.e. without root privelidges) it
shows eth0 but not eth1!?

Comment 5 Gerald Teschl 2003-02-12 22:56:24 UTC
Just tired again with redhat-config-network-1.1.96-1:

Now neat-control works as root, but if I start it as user I get
tons of "Error copying ... permission denied" errors and only eth0 (but not eth1)
shows up.

Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2003-03-25 10:51:11 UTC
hmm, should be fixed in newer versions...
