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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  same message, only the number (605) seems to increment

Expected Results:  be able to connect to internet

Additional info:

If ISDN router (CISCO 760 series) is not on, the message was something like " 
no connection, check cables". 
This same router works on my PC and another linux box (that uses a 3COM card).

wow... floating point exception in a shell script..
assigning to the right component

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-03-20 21:39:08 UTC
dhclient is getting SIGFPE for some reason. Reassigning.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2003-04-07 23:46:17 UTC
Could you send me the contents of /var/lib/dhcp/dhclient-eth0.leases 

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2003-08-01 20:41:21 UTC
Going through and cleaning up old bug reports.  Does this problem still exist or
can I close it?  No response will be taken as an affirmative.
