Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1003875
Last modified: 2013-09-04 08:44:00 EDT
Description of problem:
I've long been annoyed by
$ sudo ether-wake mercury
Specify -i <interface>.
The man page of ether-wake says:
Use interface ifname instead of the default "eth0".
but it's no longer true that "eth0" is the default. These days, the default ethernet interface varies, so you have to probe to find the name.
I have a patch that iterates of all interfaces by default.
Created attachment 793165 [details]
It's a patch
Thank you for the patch Andrew !
