Description bgraw3 1999-10-18 21:05:55 UTC
If you use linuxconf/config/networking/server tasks/IP
aliases for virutal hosts the virtual hosts do not work.
linuxconf makes some files in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts like ifcfg-eth0:? and if you
try and run ifup-aliases you get errors like the following:

ipseen_130_37_129_65-74=ifcfg-eth0:0: command not found
ifup-aliases: error in ifcfg-eth0:0: already seen ipaddr\ in -74

The ifup-aliases script has some documentation regarding
IPADDR_START, IPADDR_END, but the files created by linuxconf
don't seem to follow this and use IPADDR.

If you undo some of the debugging comments in ifup-aliases,
the device (in the script as $DEVICE) does not appear to be
defined correctly. But, if you change it to $device, other
parts seem not to work.
