Description Ra P. 2007-11-17 18:27:08 UTC
Description of problem:
Network Manager on by Default and broken when installed from the Live CD. I
think the broken NetworkManager part is universal and relates to this bug.

How reproducible:
Consistently produced on 3 different machines.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the live cd to install fedora 8
2. chkconfig --list | grep -i network
   NetworkManger is on
   network is off
3. try to set a static IP in ifcfg-devname
4. restart network

Actual results:
dhclient is spawned when the link comes up
ip link set dev ${REALDEVICE} up

The ip settings are set appropriately. Then promptly get overridden by dhclient.

Expected results:
NetworkManager is off by default.
The static IP is set.

there is another bug report at that looks to be similiar to
this report.
