Description James Clark 2003-04-15 04:13:44 EDT
If I configure a wireless interface eth1 using redhat-config-network with user
control allowed and then do ifup eth1, I get a bunch of errors ending with a
message that user control is not allowed.

The problem is that redhat-config-network is giving ifcfg-eth1 mode 600
(presumably to protect the WEP key and ESSID).  ifup is sourcing the config file
before it calls usernetctl, which obviously fails in this case; it looks like it
is doing this to avoid bug #82246.

An alternative approach to fixing bug #82246 which doesn't cause this problem is
for ifup explicitly to figure out the file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
that the user-specified config file is hard-linked to, e.g. replace the call to
source_config immediately before usernetctl in ifup/ifdown by:

INODE=`ls -i ${CONFIG}  | awk '{ print $1 }'`
DEVICE=`ls -i | awk '{ if ($1 == inode) { print $2; exit } }' inode=$INODE`
