Description Enrique Perez-Terron 2003-03-09 03:37:17 UTC
Description of problem:
ifup-post does not keep "search" values if DOMAIN is set

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

How reproducible:
Follow the steps below

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add the following lines to /etc/resolv.conf (save a copy first, to restore)
search juicy.fruit
2. Add the following lines to /etc/sysconfig/netowrk-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
3. Execute the following commands as root
cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
./ifdown eth0
./ifup eth0
cat /etc/resolv.conf
Actual results:
search mydomain.lan

Expected results:
search mydomain.lan juicy.fruit

Additional info:
The reason is the construct echo blah | while read var; do GETLOST=$var; done
where the variable GETLOST is set only in the subshell at the end of the pipe.
In the parent process, the variable is not changed. Notice that there are
two nested levels of this construct.

Comment 1 Enrique Perez-Terron 2003-03-09 03:48:07 UTC
I suggest the following patch. The inner level of "echo | while read" is
removed. The outer is kept, but the use of the variable is moved inside 
the subshell by adding a pair of parentheses, i.e.

   echo | (while read...done; echo $VARIALBE >> file)
