"mopd -a" fails to start during boot, in logfile it says something like
Unable to allocate memory and the mopd daemon is not started during boot.
eth0 is set to promisc mode still wont start during boot. Workaround for
this is to replace -a with eth0 in the mopd "start/stopp/restart" script
file that's installed with the package. This did work in earlier
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just install mopd install it to be run when systems starts
2. Check the logfiles and check if it's still is running when booted
3. Setup is a stripped (Custom installation) withut X Support etc..
Actual Results: mopd is not running after it was started as a Daemon,
unable to allocate memory
Expected Results: would be running as a Daemon when the system is
Woraround was to replace -a as argument with eth0 (The only device in the

Do you have anything in /tftpboot/mop so that you can use this? Have you

Closing as WONTFIX due to end of life of the Power Tools product line. Please
open a new bug report under the Red Hat Linux product if the component is still
included in the base Red Hat distribution.
