I just installed SuSE 9.1 on my laptop, which used to haveSlackware 9.1. I have (at one point of another) 3 different network cards I use on it: the built-in one, the one on my docking station at work, and a wireless one.
This is the problem:
Under Slackware, I could set the three cards to get ip info by dhcp, and it all worked good. However, under SuSE, when I do that, it seems to populate *something* with the info it obtained from DHCP the first time, so that whenever I try to use DHCP on another card, on another network, it failes because it kept info from the previous network.
For example, if at work I dock my laptop, I get an IP, DNS and Gateway info from DHCP on eth0. However, at the end of the day, when I go home, I plug in my laptop on my home network and neither et1 or wlan0 would pick an IP from DHCP. When I run YaST, I see that it still has DNS, Gateway and DHCP information from my work network.
Has anyone encountered this behaviour?
