Description albryan 2001-01-30 02:24:25 EST
egrep : egrep :No such file or directory.
egrep : ifcfg-ippp[0-9]+$ : No such file or directory.

I've been having minor probs after installing the 2.4.0 kernel rpm from the
redhat rawhide site. nothing major tho. I also compiled 2.4.0 on my own &
got the same errors.

since I started using 2.4.0, I've been getting startup/shutdown errors.

I have a 3com 509b nic for a cable modem (road runner). all I have to do is
set eth0 to dhcp & it has been working fine under linux. but once I
installed the new kernel, there was also a eth0:0 listed when I do netcfg &
eth0 didn't get my net connection at bootup.

right now, all I have to do to get it working is go into netcfg & click
activate on eth0 & it works fine. I removed eth0 & eth0:0, & on bootup it
redetected it as eth0, but eth0 still doesn't get an IP at bootup (YES,
ACTIVATE AT BOOTUP IS SELECTED along w/ DHCP)...I still have to click
activate, then it works.

here's the error at startup/shutdown:

egrep : egrep :No such file or directory.
egrep : ifcfg-ippp[0-9]+$ : No such file or directory.

Any idea how to fix it? like I said, no biggie but its a hassle.

Looks like initscripts is passing bad parameters to egrep. Reassigning.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-30 12:03:27 EST
What does /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
(and /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:0) say?
Comment 3 albryan 2001-01-31 01:40:40 EST


There is no longer an ifcfg-eth0:0 because I removed eth0:0 w/ netcfg.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-31 12:43:22 EST
Oh, this is the typo in init.d/network problem. See bug 24674; you
need to add a '|' just before the '\' on line 38 of /etc/init.d/network.

That was indeed the problem. Thank you, Sirs!
