Description of Problem: 

On Dell I7000 laptop with Dynalink L10C pccard ethernet adapter attached to
Linksys router via hub using dhcpcd I experience bug 61705.
I also use an alias eth0:1 for my home network.
As is known after booting 'ifup eth0' brings up eth0 + eth0:1 + dhcpcd.
However 'ifconfig eth0 up' only brings up eth0 but not eth0:1
And 'ifconfig eth0:1' does not work at all, it does nothing with error message
"SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested adress".
(of course ifconfig does not start dhcpcd).

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. bug 61705 exist for laptop after configuration of networking eth0 + eth0:1 +     
2. boot laptop
3. do '/sbin/ifconfig eth0 up' and '/sbin/ifconfig eth0:1 up'

ifconfig is the raw device manipulation tool; it doesn't handle associated
aliases like that. Use ifup instead.
