my network setting page, the save button suddenly not working. After I change the setting, it doesn't let me save.

Try and put a proper IP address into the DNS field. And see if that works? The DNS field is wrong, but the UI didn't show it as an error, but there is, reason why the Save button is disabled.

after I enter an IP in DNS field, i also changed the MTU to 8192, it let me save. but after reboot the DNS changed back to "run" and MTU changed back to 1500

 i also manually added MTU 8192 in interface file, but after reboot, it removes MTU 8192.

But I ping between my snakeoil pc and a jumbo frame enabled router with 8000 packet size, they both ok, so i think that serve the purpose anyway

Looks like a bug. Can you copy and paste your /etc/network/interfaces file here so I can have a look? Will fix this in the next update once I find out why it has problems parsing your file.

[email protected]:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.4
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.1
dns-nameservers 203.185.0.37

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet manual

Hmm. Which I don't quite get the problem you have, I'm getting "Not a String" errors again. I'll look into this and try and fix it.

Having said that, most network cards using the Realtek r8169 driver cannot do Jumbo frames of 9k.

I'm also going to improve the WebApp aspect to report the true MTU size vs the desired size, and report a warning if they don't mathc.

The "run" field in DNS will be fixed in Blind Testing U9.

The "not a string" error is intermittent. Happened to me twice, but never again. Will be nice to know which field is actually complaining about this.
