Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use the gui to give wan0 a nickname, save setup
2. ifup WireLessNickname
Determining IP information for wlan0.../sbin/dhclient-script: configuration for
wlan0 not found. Continuing with
defaults./etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/network-functions: line 62: wlan0: No
such file or directory
/sbin/dhclient-script: configuration for wlan0 not found. Continuing with defaults.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/network-functions: line 62: wlan0: No such file
(It works just fine when there is no nickname)
Determining IP information for wlan0...
I'd guess it's in the ifup-wireless script. It doesn't appear to be
a problem with eth? network devices.
I should add that with my particular wlan0 configuration, even though
I get the error messages my wireless connection does function.
I was wrong. My wired network connections give the same symptoms
when I use nicknames with them.
So, this really doesn't seem to have any relationship to wired
Maybe I should also note that this system the result of an update
Please attach /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-*.
