Description monica 2000-06-04 05:39:46 UTC
Every time I use Linuxconf to edit any parameter, my routing table is EMPTIED, with the exception of the localhost. I then lose all network and internet connectivity, and it is impossible to add the default gateway route via "route add default gw xxx.xxx.xx.x". It will not accept any entries, returning the error "SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable". From what I've been able to discern, this error means you need to add the default gateway to your routing table, which it will not accept. The only solution I have found is to use netconfig. HOWEVER, watch out because the default gateway and nameserver was auto-filled incorrectly each time I used this utility! The broadcast address was auto-filled as the default gateway and my IP address as the nameserver.

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
