Failure to add static-routes.
In file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes
the command "linuxconf --hint routing $1"
fails to give correct results, so that static-routes
specified in /etc/sysconfig/static-routes are not
Resolution: comment out part regarding linuxconf in
what incorrect results does linuxconf give?
the command "linuxconf --hint routing eth0" simply return nothings,
but then this prevents "/etc/sysconfig/static-routes" file to be read
and further static routes to be added.
Are you running a 2.0 or a 2.2 kernel?
I'm running RedHat 5.2 + updates and kernel 2.0.36.
I also noticed that the command
"linuxconf --hint routing" does return the following :
BUT as soon as one puts any argument (here eth0, but it seems
linuxconf --hint routing eth0
then linuxconf fails to give any output and so doing prevents adding
of static routes written in /etc/sysconfig/static-routes

I can't reproduce this with linuxconf 1.14, and we've received
conflicting reports that linuxconf IS giving output from
/etc/sysconfig/static-routes (output that used to work, but
failed with a newer set of network utilities) so I think that this
is specific to Francesco's configuration. Linuxconf is probably
looking at the device configuration and is not able to find a
device to which the static route applies. Unless the gateway is
directly reachable on one of the local networks, linuxconf will
not add a static route, for example.
So without further information, I have to consider this a
configuration problem on the remote machine. I think I would
want to have an archive of /etc/sysconfig/static-routes and
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg* in order to examine this
