Description David Lehman 2004-10-21 13:07:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Kudzu does not remove /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth<N>
files created by redhat-config-network when "unconfiguring" a device.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove a NIC that was configured by redhat-config-network
2. Look in /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices
3. Observe the continued existence of obsolete config file
Actual results:
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth<N> still exists.

Expected results:
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth<N> is gone.

Additional info:
This apparently helps to confuse r-c-network on subsequent invocations
(see IT ref'd in alias)
Comment 1 David Lehman 2004-10-21 13:11:37 EDT
I realize this is not exactly kudzu's fault, but once a user runs
r-c-network once (even if they don't do anything with it) the file
exists. It seems reasonable to me for kudzu to nuke it as a courtesy.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-21 14:22:16 EDT
Is this going to confuse s-c-n at all?
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-21 14:33:03 EDT
if you only delete in network-scripts and there are ifcfg-* in
networking, the devices are only marked inactive in the profile...
Comment 5 David Lehman 2004-10-21 15:27:56 EDT
So then the question is whether removed devices should be removed or
made inactive in s-c-n.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-21 15:30:20 EDT
Removed, I'd presume. I'll put the patch in.
