Description John Bass 2001-02-26 02:34:24 UTC
After upgrading from RH6.x to RH7.0 static routes for aliased interfaces
are no longer applied at boot time, or when the interfaces are manually
started/stopped with ifup/ifdown.

Comment 1 chris 2001-03-05 10:33:06 UTC
This seems to be caused by a bug in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-aliases
which looks for static routes via the parent interface instead of the aliased
one.  I think the attached patch fixes.

Patch to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-aliases to correct static routes

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-05 17:27:31 UTC
Will be fixed in 5.70-1; thanks!

Comment 4 chris 2001-05-22 09:20:03 UTC
It looks like this still hasn't been fixed in the initscripts-5.83-1 which comes
with RH7.1, or the initscripts-5.86-1 currently in RawHide.


Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-05-22 20:19:19 UTC
In what way?  The code is changed as described above.

Do note, support for *incorrectly formed* static route entries
(as linuxconf has generated in the past) was dropped.

Comment 6 chris 2001-05-23 09:00:01 UTC
No, it isn't.  In 5.83-1, line 278 of ifup-aliases says:

  grep "^$1 " /etc/sysconfig/static-routes | while read device args; do

It hasn't been patched.  If it had, it would say:

  grep "^$DEVICE " /etc/sysconfig/static-routes | while read device args; do

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2001-05-23 14:17:29 UTC
Aack, you're right. Sorry about that.
This will get fixed in 5.88-1.
