Description Mads Kiilerich 2010-05-06 11:16:10 UTC
Description of problem:

Bringing up loopback interface:                            [  OK  ]
Bringing up interface Auto_kiilerich:  
Determining IP information for ... done.
cat: /sys/class/net//ifindex: No such file or directory
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-eth: line 286: 1000 + : syntax error: operand expected (error token is "+ ")
Missing config file ifcfg-ifcfg-Auto_kiilerich.
                                                           [  OK  ]


Same setup and config as in bug 545597 where REALDEVICE also isn't set:

# head /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/{ifcfg,keys}-*
==> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-Auto_kiilerich <==
ESSID="kiilerich"
MODE=Managed
KEY_MGMT=WPA-PSK

PEERROUTES=yes

NETMASK=255.0.0.0

BROADCAST=127.255.255.255

KEY=s:1123581321

==> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/keys-Wireless_connection_1 <==
WPA_PSK=alsosecret!


The missing ifcfg-ifcfg-Auto_kiilerich seems like an error too ... or perhaps the same ...

Fixed to have a more sane error message. Will show up in rawhide and a future F-13 update.
