Environment is ethernet IP4 behind Linksys 8 port switch behind Netgear ADSL
router/firewall DHCP server.  Worked fine 4 days ago, even without disabling rdisc.

Comment 2 Radek Vokal 2005-05-19 06:47:07 UTC
Do you really need rdisc as a service? I've created a bug when adding this
daemon on the list of services, it's was turned on by default. The problem is
that updating to newer iputils doesn't turn the daemon off, so if you don't need
router discovery service, turn it off by # chkconfig rdisc off or if you want to
help with fedora testing process, try reinstalling iputils. The daemon should
appear in the list, but turned off.

If you're using router discovery and it doesn't work, than this is another
problem ..
