Description gerald 1999-02-21 14:30:54 EST
There is a minor bug in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup

The line which checks whether the device is available needs
to be changed according to

 # is this device available? (this catches PCMCIA devices
for us)
/sbin/ifconfig ${REALDEVICE} 2>&1 | grep -s "Device not
found" > /dev/null

in order to avoid error messages at boot time.

this has been fixed in a later initscripts release
