Description longyear 1999-06-09 21:40:51 UTC
If you do *NOT* have linuxconf enabled (or have removed
the package) then initscripts' ifup-aliases script failes
to load the aliases correctly if you have more than 10
aliases. The probem is that the aliases need to be loaded
in numerical order (0, 1, ..., 9, 10, 11, 12, etc.) and not
in the order that it tries to use (0, 1, 10, 11, ..., 19, 2, 20, 21, ...). This is because you use a simple directory expansion
and not in a simple loop of trying 0, then 1, then 2, then 3, etc. until it finds the first missing
alias file.

If you want to discuss this or want a patch for this then send me email. <longyear>.
