Network activation

I had the same problem. Fedora messes up the network config i think. 
At first you will need to go to the folder
/etc/sysconfig/network-sripts/ and delete the symbolic link
icfg-lo-rpmsave that leads to the Ifcfg-lo file (the file you have been
editing at that moment. That's why it can't write to it, because it's a
self reference. 
The second problem i had was that the package initscripts wasn't
properly installed in the upgrade process. This seems to be a systematic
bug, because it happened to me two times, when i installed fedora. Try
this, see it it helps you.
