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): redhat-config-network-tui-1.3.10-1 redhat-config-network-1.3.10-1 How reproducible: Everytime 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.

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.
