slack 12.2 boot reverts to dhcp
First: this problem could be with installing Slackware on a Mac using Parallels--virtual machine software. I don't think it is because five other installs of earlier slack distros work just fine.
Slackware 12.2 is installed and working with dynamic IP address. I tried changing to a static address using netconfig script--this has worked for 14 years and I figured it'd work again. I also manually add nameservers to /etc/resolv.conf. Re-boot and the machine comes back with dynamic address and /etc/resolv.conf has been changed back to the nameservers that my router--and dhcp server--gave it.
Checked /etc/rc.d/inet1.conf and all the changes made by netconfig script are correct for static IP.
Just for grins I take the machine down to single user mode with "init S" and back up with "init 3". The static IP is now working fine; so the rc scripts are probably working fine. Once again reboot and the thing reverts back to using dhcp, the resolv.conf file is changed, and rc.inet1.conf file is ignored.
What the . . .?
Any ideas? I really prefer to use static IP on my LAN.
