Re: FC8 how to get static IP working

Looks like an anaconda bug.

I just pulled system-config-network-1.4.3.src.rpm and found a jewel. In src/netconfpkg/NCDevice.py lines 308 and 309:

        if self.BootProto == "static":
            self.BootProto = "none"

So apparently the maintainers of system-config-network are aware that anaconda has introduced a bug. Question becomes: why put on a bandage in the network configurator instead of fixing the source of the problem?

Note also that any user scripts that follow the documentation will break.

I'll pull the anaconda sources and see if I can find where this is introduced.

:m)
