Description David L. Parsley 2002-02-12 11:01:29 EST
There's a bug in ifup-post near the bottom:

if [ ... \
    -a need hostname \

Which doesn't work since test doesn't eval the function; suggested fix:

if need_hostname && [ ...

This bug causes the hostname to be set even when need_hostname is 0
