Description Lokhin 2002-11-20 18:18:55 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ru-RU; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021022

Description of problem:
Static routes can't be set in /etc/sysconfig/static-routes if following the
initscripts' documentation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read the /usr/share/doc/initscripts-6.95/sysconfig.txt file
2. Set a static route on a particular network interface in
3. service network restart
4. netstat -nr

Actual Results:  No static route is set on a particular interface mentioned in
static-routes as 'eth1 net netmask gw eth1'
or 'eth1 net netmask gw'.

Expected Results:  Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface   UG       40 0          0 eth1

Additional info:

Documentation should be fixed since many people read it at first and then
configure their network settings. Didn't find any mention about
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-<DEV> in sysconfig.txt.

Documentation stuff fixed in the rawhide initscripts, along with some functionality.
