Description Fabio Lopiano 2003-08-18 12:00:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3; Linux)

Description of problem:
/etc/sysconfig/network-script/ifup-aliases yelds an error like this:

error in ifcfg-lo:0: didn't specify device or ipaddr

when reading an alias generated by linuxconf.

the problem should have been resolved in initscripts-6.67-1 (according to CVS)
but, apparently, the initscripts-6.67-1.rpm was built from initscripts-6.67.

In fact I checked initscripts-6.67-1.src.rpm and it contains the scripts from 6.67.

So it seems that the "bug" is actually due to an error in the building of the rpm.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
create an alias for an interface via linuxconf (e.g. lo:0) 
restart network (or just call ifup l0)


Actual Results:  error in ifcfg-lo:0: didn't specify device or ipaddr

Additional info:

I wrote enough information on the description, I guess.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-08-18 12:31:52 EDT
At this point, if it's not fixed in current sources, it probably won't be fixed.
It appears to be fixed in 6.75 and later.
