Description Gerald Teschl 2003-04-07 17:38:13 UTC
Description of problem:
I just wanted to give neat a try and started it in oder to change my
network config. It just crashed and hence I gave up and went for
vi and edited ifcfg-eth0 by hand. However, !!!surprise!!!, the system
would ignore the changes I made to ifcfg-eth0. After some code reading,
I found out that that neat copies ifcfg-eth0 from /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
to /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default and ifup will prefer




This isn't what I would call a neat surprise. It shoud first of all
MOVE the file and a popup window should inform the user about the change.

the initscripts should not prefer that file... grrr

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2003-04-17 10:45:40 UTC
Bill, please remove all references to /etc/sysconfig/networking from the
initscripts... thx
