Description Oliver Jones 1999-04-13 09:23:59 EDT
Linuxconf 1.12r5-6rh doesn't think ip aliasing support is in
my 2.2.5 kernel when it is. Look:

[root] duality:~# uname -a
Linux duality.home.deeper.co.nz 2.2.5 #1 SMP Sun Apr 4
20:44:33 NZST 1999 i686 unknown
[root] duality:~# ifconfig eth0:0 192.168.1.2
[root] duality:~# ifconfig eth0:0
eth0:0    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:10:5A:5F:AC:6B
          inet addr:192.168.1.2  Bcast:192.168.1.255

          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

* Fiddles with Linuxconf *
[root] duality:~# linuxconf --hint ipalias
Error
No kernel support for devices aliasingDEV_RECONF_ALIASES=""

This is spat out on boot as well.  Please fix.

Thank you.
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 1999-04-13 12:34:59 EDT
That's a known upgrade issue.  We will be releasing a new linuxconf
as a 5.2 2.2.x upgrade at some time in the future.  In the meantime,
you can try rebuilding the rawhide linuxconf source rpm; it may well
work for you -- we just haven't tested it enough to release as a 5.2
2.2.x kernel upgrade yet, and it interacts with a few other components
that we need to test all together back in the 5.2 environment.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-19 16:20:59 EDT
this is fixed in the latest linuxconf in Raw Hide; recompiling it
for 5.2 should work OK.
