Description of problem:
In Issues :: IBM-RSS :: Issue 9257 IBM RSS reports:

The network configuration application, neat, will strip comments from the end of
a line in modules.conf if before that comment is an entry for a loadable module.

For example, before we run neat, our modules.conf file looks like this:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
# we have comments like this
alias usb-controller usb-uhci # we need end of line comments
# we have comments like this

Then after we run neat to add the ethernet adapter it looks like this:
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
# we have comments like this
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
# we have comments like this
alias eth0 pcnet32

We don't believe neat should be stripping any of these comments from the
modules.conf file. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add comments to modules.conf neat modules.conf

Actual Results:  comments are missing

Expected Results:  comments are not missing

Moved so it blocks, instead of depending on, the U3 blocker bug list.

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2003-10-06 14:36:18 UTC
built in errata-candidate

Comment 4 Suzanne Hillman 2004-04-13 20:17:37 UTC
Verified. Closing.

Comment 5 Suzanne Hillman 2004-04-13 20:18:17 UTC
*sigh* No, verified for i386. I didn't check on ia64. Putting back
into modified state.
