Description Christoph Rohland 1999-10-18 11:29:37 UTC
when configured with linuxconf

The linuxconf part was removed from

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-18 14:34:59 UTC
Fixed in initscripts-4.56-1, which will be in the next Raw Hide
release.

Comment 2 Anonymous 2000-02-02 15:12:59 UTC
This is apparently not fixed in RH6.2 Beta 2

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-02 15:32:59 UTC
Could you give an example (i.e., post the config files) that doesn't
work?

Comment 4 Christoph Rohland 2000-02-02 15:41:59 UTC
If I use linuxconf to add eg a static route to the local net
1.1.1.1 with net,ask 255.255.0.0 it generates the file
/etc/sysconfig/static-routes with the following entry:

any net 1.1.1.1 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw eth0

Your script ecpects something like

eth0 ...

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-02-02 15:57:59 UTC
Actually, these should be handled through /etc/rc.d/init.d/network;
the reason they aren't working is because linuxconf is generating
*BROKEN* files. Somehow I'm not surprised.

A workaround will be added in the next initscripts release.
