Description Tarhon-Onu Victor 2002-10-24 06:08:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020823

Description of problem:
You have to device how will static routes set. Right now ifup-routes exits if it
does not find /etc/sysconfig/netrowking/devices/DEVICE.route, This is the file
which from it reads static routes parameters in some newer format.
The static routes can alsoo be defined in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-DEVICE, acording to ifup-routes. But if we
choose to set up static routes only in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-DEVICE, nothing will happen, because
/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/DEVICE.route does not exist.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.echo ' via' >>
2. ifup eth8
3. ip rou sh dev eth8 | grep

Actual Results:  The static route to via gateway is
not present into main routing table.
