Description Michael McConnell 1999-11-28 17:32:34 UTC
With initscripts-4.68-1 the networking tries to attach a default route to
EVERY network interface as it brings it up. The following patch appears to
correct this, although I'm not sure whether this patch fixes the problem or
hides it...

Bug 7345, 7355, 7365, 7366 and 7386 all appear to be duplicates of this one.

See Bug 7319 for my additional comments.

Seriously though, there must have been a reason this was added. Does some
software package (DHCP?) rely on a default route being present?
