RFE: system-config-network should support non-numeric alias like "eth0:DNS"
Last modified: 2013-12-13 05:43:31 EST
Description of problem:
Create an aliased eth0:DNS in "/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices"
(Why use "DNS" instead of "01"? Because:
- It works in RH ES 4
- Using short strings indicating what the alias is for is better
than carrying an Excel table along )
Starting system-config-network gives the error dialog:
"eth0:DNS, Device not specified or alias not a number!"
It then shows the devices but evidently there are problems with activation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In "/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices" create file ifcfg-eth0:
Additionally create file ifcfg-eth0:DNS
system-config-network should be able to handle "non-numeric alias".
yes it should
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
We've kept/resurrected s-c-network only as a stop-gap measure until NetworkManager grows some still missing functionality. I won't add new features to it, though. Closing.
