Description victor.tavares 1999-10-20 22:50:00 UTC
The following is an error with the ifup-aliases script in

If I add an ip range in ifcfg-eth0:0 like x.x.x.90-100, the
following happens error shows up in /var/log/messages:

ifup-aliases: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-aliases:
ipseen_x_x_x_90-100=ifcfg-eth0:0: command not found
ifup-aliases: error in ifcfg-eth0:0: already seen ipaddr
x.x.x.90-100 in -100

This worked in RedHat 6.0. I got around the problem by
replacing the ifup-aliases script in 6.1 with the script in
6.0, and it worked...
