Description Wolfgang Rupprecht 2010-04-28 17:51:25 UTC
Description of problem:

The initscripts in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ do not ignore the ifcfg-Auto_SIDNAME files.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run NetworkManager (default)
2. add an automatic WIFI entry to be run at boot-time
3. stop running NetworkManager and run networking instead
4. reboot
5. notice the networking init scripts barf when they get to the ifcfg-Auto_XXXX name.
Actual results:
Lots of gripes about a shell-script in pain.

Expected results:
No gripes.

Additional info:
The ifcfg-Auto_XXXX files should probably just be ignored.  Alternately perhaps a field for NM_CONTROLLED=yes could be added to the file.

This is fixed in F-13. It's an awful large set to backport, though.

no problem.  I just didn't want this to fall through the cracks.  Feel free to close the bug.
