Description Keith T. Garner 2003-11-24 19:22:00 UTC
Description of problem:
redhat-config-network does not create the proper links for copied
interfaces in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts when changing profiles.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two hardware devices in redhat-config-network.  Say eth0 a
wired card, and eth1 a wireless card.
2. Configure eth0 to be included in the Common profile
3. Make two copies of eth1: eth1_home, eth1_work
4. Create a profile called home and activate eth1_home in home
5. Create a profile called work and activate eth1_work in work
6. Set your profile to home.

Actual results:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1_home is created

Expected results:
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 is created

Additional info:
This profile scheme worked as documented in RH9.

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2003-11-25 09:00:28 UTC
This is intented, as the new initscripts should handle
# /sbin/ifup eth1_home
as well.

Comment 2 Keith T. Garner 2003-11-25 15:59:10 UTC
While one can do that, about about auto ifuped devices like a pcmcia
network card?  When one pops in a card, it'll show up as eth1 to the
system, and the pcmcia scripts will attempt to "ifup eth1" which will
not exist.

While I can manually ifup the device, I do believe this change breaks
expected funtionality.
