Description rbucker 1998-12-12 22:35:55 UTC
/etc/network had a line:

GATEWAY=0.0.0.0

During the install, I had selected 'no gateway'  When I
finally rebooted, there was a cardmgr error message in
/var/log/messages.  cardmgr[220]... (sorry, I do not have a
record)

when I debuged /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup, I
determined that there was a 'route add default gw $GATEWAY
$DEVICE' statement.  When I tried the statement manually,
with '0.0.0.0' I received the same error message.

CONCLUSION:
either remove GATEWAY from the network file, or fix 'route'
to support 0.0.0.0

Was this verified?

Comment 2 Mike Wangsmo 1999-01-12 17:00:59 UTC
No, and I don't remember why I assigned it to you.  I've reassigned
the bug to Dave and he can verify it.

What is the status of this bug?

Comment 4 David Lawrence 1999-06-29 18:38:59 UTC
Thsi has been verified with 5.2. A line created in
/etc/sysconfig/network by the install

GATEWAY=0.0.0.0

causes the following error in .var/log/messages

June 29 13:36:39 test221 cardmgr[220]: + SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-15 21:46:59 UTC
this was fixed in the 6.0 installer
