Description Ben Liblit 2003-01-21 04:56:55 EST
Description of problem:

One is supposed to be able to put "netprofile=<foo>" on the kernel command line
to select network profile <foo> when booting.  However, a trivial typo in

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


How reproducible:

Easily, every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create at least two network profiles using "neat".
2. Using GRUB or LILO, add "netprofile=foo" to the kernel command line,
replacing "foo" with the name of one of the network profiles.
3. Boot.
Actual results:

Named network profile is not activated.

Expected results:

Named network profile should have been activated.

Additional info:

The bug is on line 766 of "/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit", where a loop iterates over
"cmdline" instead of "$cmdline".  I will attach a diffs to this report showing
the correction.
