Description Ian Prowell 2000-01-01 22:50:50 UTC
The vmnet1:0 entry in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory seems to
break the initilization of rp3.  When I load up rp3 swith gdb every time I
get the following stack.

(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/bin/rp3

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I am running the newest version of rp3 that I can find.

[iprowell@improv iprowell]$ rpm -q rp3

I think that the : might be causing a problem.

Comment 1 Ian Prowell 2000-01-01 22:58:59 UTC
Doing the following allowed rp3 to come up normally.

[root@improv network-scripts]# mv ifcfg-vmnet1:0 tmp.ifcfg-vmnet1:0

I think this rather directly implies that this interface config file is the

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-01-17 17:02:59 UTC
I'm almost certain that this is fixed in rp3-1.0.4 in Raw Hide
Please give it a try and reopen this bug if you're still having trouble.
