Description chris.studholme 1999-11-08 18:56:20 UTC
Older versions of RedHat used to have "ifconfig ${DEVICE}
${IPADDR} netmask ${NETMASK} broadcast ${BROADCAST}
${ARP:+arp}" in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup.  Newer
versions are missing the "${ARP:+arp}" part.  This is needed
by people who are using the ethertap device and want proper
ARP activity.  I can't see it effecting anyone else.

Um, how old is 'older' in this case?

I don't see any traces of this in our CVS archive... :)

added in initscripts-4.65-1, which will be in the next Raw Hide release.
