I am facing a problem that I don't understand. I installed FC4 on my
laptop and wireless is working fine but if I launch the wireless
connection after the boot (using for instance ifup eth1) I loose the
ownership of the X session, ie I am unable to open any graphical

If I kill my session and log again, I recover this ownership (and the
wireless connection is not lost...).

Who can help me?

Thank you.

Dumb question - is your hostname changing when you bring up the
network connection? If so, this will cause problems in X.

This seems to be exactly the problem and it seems to be present only
with gnome..... (not appears with kde...)

What can i do? How to guess the hostname you will get when you want to
use a wifi in an airport for instance? Shall I put all possible names in

I'm interrested to the solution of this problem....
