Description brian 1999-07-07 18:07:08 EDT
The if-up and if-down scripts do not work for ip aliases
under 2.2.x in RHL5.2.  I upgraded all the appropriate
packages for using kernel 2.2.x under RHL5.2, and it still
didn't work.  The /etc/rc.d/init.d/network script reported
that device aliasing wasn't supported by the kernel.  It
was, and I brought the alias up manually with ifconfig.  I
ended up writing my own initscript and alias-up/down
scripts, but it is a cheap hack and I think it could be
taken care of better.

what happens if you comment out the portion of the initscripts
that refer to linuxconf?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-07 18:34:59 EDT
what does ifcfg-eth* say?
