```Dear All,

I'm trying a simple exercise:

eqn = f''[x] + 2 f'[x] + 30 f[x] == 0;
Clear[f];
Clear[x];
eqn1 = f == 1;
eqn2 = f' == 0.5;
DSolve[{eqn, eqn1, eqn2}, f[x], x]

and I get:
DSolve::deqn: Equation or list of equations expected instead of True in the first argument {30 f[x]+2 (f^\[Prime])[x]+(f^\[Prime]\[Prime])[x]==0,f==1,True}. >>

so f'=0.5 is True for Mathematica?

How can it be?

If I remove eqn2 from DSolve then I get a solution with a parameter of course.

Cheers,

Mariusz
