Description Johnray Fuller 2001-11-07 14:16:56 EST
Description of Problem:

From Ed:

" I was just browsing on redhat-list and enigma-list, and someone
mentioned that they didn't know about /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd, and if it
wasn't in a readme somewhere, that would just prove they never read readme

    So I was just about ready to say, "hey, just check out our reference
guide, and you'll find a writeup on it there.  Except for one small

    That's right, the file isn't documented in the RG.  Not surprising --
I think it appeared late in the 7.2 cycle.  But something to keep in mind
when updating for [the next release]..."

Comment 3 Ed Bailey 2001-11-08 11:13:51 EST
More related stuff from enigma-list:

"The reference guide you cited does not mention the new (in 7.2)
"/etc/sysconfig/networking/" directory, nor does it explain how some
of the configuration files are linked (eg, ifcfg-*).  Since these
are changes from 7.1, they should be documented."
In addition, it would probably be worthwhile to mention
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts in this section, and point to the appropriate
chapter where these are covered...
Comment 4 Johnray Fuller 2002-04-03 16:47:28 EST
I have added content documenting both of these items in /etc/sysconfig for the
next release.

Thanks for your input.
