Description Michael Young 2003-04-09 11:18:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020921

Description of problem:
The network script in /etc/rc.d/init.d gets the list of devices to try to start
from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. However the ifup script that actually
starts the device looks in other places first (as in bug 82246 ). This means
that for every device you want started automatically, there has to be a file
such as ifcfg-eth0 in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts even if this file isn't
actually used to configure the device, which at the least is highly confusing
What should happen is that the network script should look for interfaces in the
same places as ifup, and in the same order.

Actually, the excessive searching in ifup was removed, so they match again now.
