Description Jos Vos 2003-01-14 09:54:26 UTC
Description of problem (initscripts-7.00-1):
The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-* files do not allow comment lines or
empty lines (the old static-routes file did), which is very handy to have, be
able to temporarily disable routes etc. Could support for this (pretty easy, let
me know if you want a patch ;-)) please be added?

I noticed the same thing. Would be really handy.

Just like with what was added to the iptables initscript.

This was fixed shortly before FC4.
