Description Enrico Scholz 2001-06-25 07:16:05 EDT
Description of Problem:

arping -- called by /etc/init.d/network through /sbin/ifup -- will be
executed before network filesystems gets mounted. Therefore /usr may be
unavailable at this time.

I suggest to move arping to /sbin

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount /usr by NFS
2. reboot

Actual Results:

error messages because arping was not found

Additional Information:
$ rpm -q initscripts iputils
