Description gerald 1999-11-29 13:43:35 UTC
If GATEWAYDEV="", the ifup command will set the default route to the
loop back interface. (E.g., this happens on a system without
network card.)

This is nonsense and it will prevent all ppp dialers to work correctly
unless one removes this default route by hand.
