Description Gabriel Mihaes 2005-05-05 15:43:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040904 Firefox/0.9.3

Description of problem:
When adding static routes using route-* files, the last line is ignored by ifup-routes if that line doesn't end with a newline character:

From /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes :
           while read line; do
               /sbin/ip route add $line
           done < "$file"
There's a wrong way for treating the contents of route-* files. A simple example to reproduce the undesired effect:
[root@c0kered tmp]# cat test.txt via via via[root@c0kered tmp]#
[root@c0kered tmp]# while read line; do echo $line; done < test.txt via via
[root@c0kered tmp]#

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0
2.EOF should be right at the end of the last line containing a route without being terminated by \n
3.service network restart
