/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/Auto_SIDNAME files cause networking scripts to barf
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:23:10 EDT
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):
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
5. notice the networking init scripts barf when they get to the ifcfg-Auto_XXXX name.
Lots of gripes about a shell-script in pain.
The ifcfg-Auto_XXXX files should probably just be ignored. Alternately perhaps a field for NM_CONTROLLED=yes could be added to the file.

boot.log fragment showing the initscripts parse failure
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.
