Description rbucker 1998-12-12 22:35:55 UTC
/etc/network had a line: GATEWAY=0.0.0.0 During the install, I had selected 'no gateway' When I finally rebooted, there was a cardmgr error message in /var/log/messages. cardmgr... (sorry, I do not have a record) when I debuged /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup, I determined that there was a 'route add default gw $GATEWAY $DEVICE' statement. When I tried the statement manually, with '0.0.0.0' I received the same error message. CONCLUSION: either remove GATEWAY from the network file, or fix 'route' to support 0.0.0.0

Was this verified?
Comment 2 Mike Wangsmo 1999-01-12 17:00:59 UTC
No, and I don't remember why I assigned it to you. I've reassigned the bug to Dave and he can verify it.

What is the status of this bug?
Comment 4 David Lawrence 1999-06-29 18:38:59 UTC
Thsi has been verified with 5.2. A line created in /etc/sysconfig/network by the install GATEWAY=0.0.0.0 causes the following error in .var/log/messages June 29 13:36:39 test221 cardmgr: + SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-15 21:46:59 UTC
this was fixed in the 6.0 installer
