Description Frank Sweetser 2001-07-31 14:20:42 EDT
The new neat package seems to create symlinks out of
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ to the suitable profile directory. 
However, usernetctl sees that the ifcfg-* files are symlinks, and refuses
to manage interfaces even though USRCTL=yes is set.
Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-07-31 15:25:34 EDT
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-08-08 18:21:18 EDT
Current neat (i.e., 0.7-1) should not create symlinks, but hardlinks.
