Description Nils Philippsen 2003-02-12 03:33:27 EST
Description of problem:

When booting, my cipcb0 is always started regardless of the ONBOOT setting.
Obviously I only want the CIPE link to be up when needed ;-).

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with CIPE interface configured
Actual results:

run "ifconfig" to see cipcb0 interface up and running though ONBOOT="no"

Expected results:

cipcb0 is down after boot when ONBOOT="no"

Additional info:

Apparently, /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/network-functions has the function
is_available() which checks for availability of an interface, loads the modules
in correct order, etc. This function also loads CIPE modules which apparently
bring up the interface.

Patch to /etc/network-scripts/network-functions for CIPE to work properly with ONBOOT="no"

This patch doesn't run "modprobe cipcb" when checking a cipe interface. This
probably should be extended to other virtual interface types that don't
correspond to real hardware (where module loading order has an impact).

I don't see this on my laptop. What does your
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-cipcb0 look like?

I upgraded yesterday evening and now it all works again (with the original
script). Maybe it was a not so ideal combination of package versions before.
