Description Paul Scott 2007-10-05 11:42:59 UTC
Description of problem:
I am using the KDE live CD test 3. I boot the CD and naturally get a DHCP 
address. I install the OS and during install specify a static IPv4 address 
(along with netmask, gateway, dns and hostname). I disable IPv6. After a 
successful installation, I reboot and find that after I've created a user and 
logged in, I'm still using DHCP. I run system-config-network and find it 
configured for DHCP, my static settings lost. I reconfigure it and reboot. 
After reboot, I am still using DHCP! I check /etc/sysconfig/network 
and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and they are correctly 
configured with my static address. The /etc/resolv.conf however is using the 
DNS servers relevant to the DHCP network, not the ones I want. The 
file /etc/hosts is non-existent!! I create it with a loopback address and a 
single reference to my static address.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nm-applet version 0.70 

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from Live CD. Configure static address.
2. Reboot 
3. Find self still using DHCP.
Actual results:
IP address always provided via DHCP when NetworkManager running.

Expected results:
NetworkManager should honour the information in the /etc/sysconfig/network* 

Additional info:
Shutdown NetworkManager process and restart network configures the static 
address correctly.
