IPX setup problems
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
1. When using linuxconf to configure IPX it sets the
IPXINTERNALNETNUM and IPXINTERNALNODENUM both to zero.
These cause /sbin/ipx_internal_net to complain about
illegal values. Numbers greater than zero work.
2. In /etc/rc.d/init.d/network /sbin/ipx_internal_net is
called. According to the IPX HOTWO it is recommended not
to run it. It always becomes the primary interface, not
what you usually want.
3. In /etc/rc.d/init.d/network if you are using DHCP the
IPX ifup-ipx script does not run because the file
/etc/sysconfig/network is not sourced (it is only sourced).
(The 'if [ $IPX = yes ]' fails.)
This is fixed in the latest initscripts in Raw Hide.
