Description furiorh 2000-01-28 17:13:36 UTC
We have a large LAN made up of non-contiguous blocks.
I have /etc/sysconfig/static-routes containing, among other things:
   eth0 net x.y.1.0    netmask 255.255.255.0
   eth0 net x.y.2.0    netmask 255.255.255.0
   eth0 net x.y.144.0  netmask 255.255.240.0
The system I am configuring now lives in x.y.1.0 and has
   DEVICE=eth0
   IPADDR=x.y.1.22
   NETMASK=255.255.255.0
   NETWORK=x.y.1.0
   BROADCAST=x.y.1.255
   ONBOOT=yes
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0.

The problem is that linuxconf does not install my other static routes
to eth0: it installs only the one where the machine lives on.
Disabling linuxconf (chmod u-x /bin/linuxconf) eliminates the problem:
the loop in the "else" part within
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-routes is exactly what I want,
and linuxconf seems to add some undesired intelligence.

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore.
