After performing an update/upgrade of my Beta 5 installation to RC1,
I was not able to access the Internet using my Ethernet port. (I also
have a wireless card, but it was unconfigured at this point anyway).
I was able to ping other nodes on my LAN (such as a printer and the
router box), but DNS resolutions didn't seem to be happening.
Error messages in /var/log/messages led me to /etc/dhclient.conf, which
was a new file (or version?) installed by the RC1 update (which I
determined from the date/timestamp of the file). I mv'ed it to
/etc/dhclient.conf.orig and deliberately did NOT attempt to manually
create/concoct a new one; according to the dhclient.conf man page, it's
not required providing you have a relatively simple set-up, which mine is.
This has temporarily resolved the problem for now. I had to manually grab
knetworkmanager off of my DVD, but still can't configure my wireless card
to use my WPA2-TKIP password, but I believe that's orthogonal to the basic
dhclient configuration issue. But I can access the Internet with eth0.
I have added my comments, /var/log/messages extract and dhclient.conf to
BZ 449851 which may help diagnose the cause of all this.
