As the network is still "hardwired" with ethernet cable and the boxes
all have static IP addresses I would like to continue using the old
network service rather than NetworkManager.
After installing FC10 on one of the machines without problems, I stopped
and disabled NetworkManager and configured the network using the widget
System -> Administration -> Network from the gnome desktop and filling
in the "DNS" and "Hosts" information as with FC9. But then I made a
in editing device etho under the "Devices" tab -- I accidentally typed
in the gateway address instead of 255.255.255.0 in the "Subnet mask"
field. Now whenever I try correcting this from the "network" widget the
field reverts back to what I mistakenly typed in before. This is
apparently why I can't reach the network from this box.
Is there an easy fix to this -- short of doing the installation over?
Thanks for the help!
I am old school when it comes to network configuration - I would
edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and change the values
for NETMASK and GATEWAY there. Then run "service network restart" to
use the new values.
