Description Piepho, Trent 1999-03-31 22:49:21 EST
Around line 71 in /sbin/ifup there is a line that reads:

    ifenslave $RFLAG "$DEVICE" "$MASTER"

This is backwards, it should be:

    ifenslave $RFLAG "$MASTER" "$DEVICE"

as per ifenslave usage
Usage: ifenslave [-afrvV] <master-interface>
<slave-interface> [metric <N>]
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-01 11:56:59 EST
fixed in latest initscripts (3.98-2, or so)
