I use FC8 on my T61. I set static addresses for everything, but still

Initially when I do ifup eth0 it works fine, and I can use internet,
but after a minute (the indicator tells that "aquiring network
address") it goes from 85.X.X.X (that is the correct one) to 169.X.X.X
that is some internal address I think.
Any hints? How can i turn off the dhcp stuff?
Hard to say without more information. But it may be NetworkManager
Try this as root:
service NetworkManager stop
service NetworkManagerDispatcher stop
If that works correctly and stays statically configured then make
disabling of NetworkManager permanent:
chkconfig NetworkManager off
chkconfig NetworkManagerDispatcher off
If that does not do it, please send the contents of your
You are not only assuming that he is running NM but also that he is
running network. So after he stops NM he has to make sure that he is
running network. Also checking /etc/dnclient.conf might be helpfull.
I his reference to use of 'ifup eth0' and that it initially had the
correct static address as evidence of several things, among them:
- He is somewhat familiar with network configuration via command-line.
- He IS running network in order to get that far.
I did not presume he was running NM, but suggested it as a possibility,
and how to test/remedy that if he was. It seemed likely since a dhcp
lease attempt and zeroconf address assignment were occurring.
