Can you do 'ls /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts' ?

Comment 3 Daniel Malmgren 2005-04-19 01:28:40 EDT
Hmmm... At a closer look, the file ifcfg looked strange. It is from 2002 and
empty. Removing it seems to fix this issue.

Seems strange though that this didn't give any problems in previous initscripts (?).

The search for available configs was optimized somewhat in 8.08-1; it uses
slightly different code.
