I currently have the binary NetworkManager-0.7.996-3.git20090928.fc12.x86_64
installed on my qemu-kvm F12 guest I am using for testing. The source is
I have gotten the problem on both F11 (with current updates) and F12-rawhide
both as qemu-kvm guests since I can fiddle with the network definitions easier.
I have not worked with koji before but I can give 134947 a try too. I have my
F12 build environment on a F12-rawhide-current host and would then transport
the results to the guests. I am C and C++ "literate" and have modified/built
many rpms previously.
Although the results on both F11 and F12 are the same, they do act a little
On F11 with the default network on eth0 and a private network on eth1, eth1
becomes the default.
On F12 with the default network on eth0 and a private network on eth1, eth0
becomes the default and everything is OK. BUT, if I reverse the network
definitions (eth0 is a private network and eth1 is the default (NAT) network),
the it does not work because eth0 still becomes the default.
In all cases, setting the "connection only" checkbox does not stay set.
Question: if the checkbox did work, what parameter in what configuration file is
suppose to be set?
