Description Keith Hornbaker 2003-01-21 03:47:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
I have two nic cards installed eth0=RealTek RTL-8139 SMC and eth1=AMD PCNET32.
eth0 is configured for DSL at 100mhz. eth1 is connected to a 10mhz local lan
using a static ip. Both cards were detected and installed correctly during the
installation, following installation both cards operated correctly. When Samba
didn't work a typo was discovered in the host name. Tried to fix the typo in X
with the Redhat Config tool which on the first attempt appeared to work, but
after a reboot found eth0 had been assigned the static ip of eth1 and eth1 was
inactive. Tried to set things back the way they were in X using the redhat
config tool but started having the network config program crashing and making no
updates (saved a copy of the dump file). The only way I could get eth0
configured for dsl again was to use ifconfig which the config tool now 
recognizes. I reconfigured eth1 with ifconfig but the config tool still sees it
as inactive after a reboot.   

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Setup system with multiple nic cards
2.Change host name with config tool 

Actual Results:  Network configuration changed on eth0 (static ip of eth1
assigned) and eth1 was made inactive

Expected Results:  System updated with new host name

please attach the dump file

Comment 2 Adrian Bright 2003-10-15 12:51:33 UTC
I've got the same kind of thing, but this crashes when any change at all made 
when you try and save. This is under 7.2 with ver 0.9.10-2. Is there any 
prospect of a fix for a 7.2 network-config, or is it best just to try upgrading 
to 9.

Eg below:
