Description Jay Freeman 1999-04-04 21:10:31 UTC
[root(6)@ironclad init.d]# network restart ./network: ./network: No such file or directory ./network: ./network: No such file or directory At first I assumed this was because it wasn't finding the script when it did $0 because "." wasn't on the scripts path (was on mine, but I did a printenv from inside the script and it wasn't on its). But then I changed the "$0 stop" to "echo $0 stop" and got back "./network stop" which is including the ./ which should be required to get around the path problem.

this works for me in both 5.2 and 5.9.x. You must have messed up something on your system.
Comment 2 Jay Freeman 1999-04-05 22:31:59 UTC
I figured out why it happens (don't know why this didn't occur to me before), and it IS a "problem" with the script. The script contains the line: cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts :before it gets to the case statement to see how it was called, which bumps you (the script) out of the init.d directory, causing "network restart" or "./network restart" to not function. /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart DOES function because the directory in that case is explicitly named. I understand if this is intended functionality and not a problem, but it was rather disconcerting when I tried it because the other scripts don't have a problem when run like that.

fixed in latest initscripts (3.99-2).
