Description Rudi Heitbaum 2000-10-10 09:07:04 EDT
The static routes file generated from linuxconf creates the following
failure "No such device"
when changing the routing table.

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-10-10 11:52:25 EDT
The ifup-routes script in initscripts doesn't know how to handle the "gw"
parameter on the line in your configuration file.  This is being fixed in CVS
for initscripts-5.50.  Thanks!
