Description Wade Mealing 2008-11-17 22:24:16 EST
Description of problem:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/en-US/RHEL510/Deployment_Guide/s3-modules-bonding-directives.html references using the bond module.

This module does not exist on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.X

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/en-US/RHEL510/Deployment_Guide/s3-modules-bonding-directives.html as of Tue Nov 18 06:24:37 EST 2008

Please modify the line to mention the bonding not "bond" module.

Looking at the referenced URL, this appears to be fixed already
Comment 5 Douglas Silas 2009-09-10 17:58:29 EDT
I think the confusion might arise from the following instruction found on the previous page:

Add the following line to /etc/modprobe.conf:

alias bond<N> bonding

Replace <N> with the interface number, such as 0. For each configured channel bonding interface, there must be a corresponding entry in /etc/modprobe.conf.

see: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/en-US/RHEL510/Deployment_Guide/s2-modules-bonding.html

So it appears the line referenced is correct in the context of the previous page's procedure.

What I wrote above makes sense, but it appears that these bonding sections in the Deployment Guide need to be revised. This bug is now subsumed by bug 238660, so I am making this one a dupligcate.
