Description jim 1999-10-20 04:16:12 UTC
When upgrading from RH 6.0 to RH 6.1 ...
The next thing I noticed was that my "IP Aliases for Virtual
Host" no longer worked.  It turns out the scripts are broken
and can't handle ranges of IP addresses (i.e.  There amy also be other problems with
it, I don't know.  My fix for this may not have been the

3) Copy the network-functions file from the new RH61
distribution into the newly extracted directory.

4) Issue the following command.
/etc/rc.d/init/network restart

Grab the latest initscripts from Raw Hide; this should solve the problem.
