#3272 closed task (fixed)

dhclient sysconfig file breaks boot scripts

Reported by: Michael Westbom Owned by: bdubbs@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


The chapter on dhcp client,, instructs the user to create a directory in /etc/sysconfig called ifconfig.eth0.

This breaks /etc/init.d/network and related scripts, which seek a file called ifconfig.eth0.

I propose changing this piece:

install -v -d /etc/sysconfig/ifconfig.eth0 &&
cat > /etc/sysconfig/ifconfig.eth0/dhclient << "EOF"

to this:

cat > /etc/sysconfig/ifconfig.eth0 << "EOF"

This allows the script generated by the rest of the block to perform correctly.

You're right. This page needs to be updated for LFS 7.0. I'll try to get this done today or tomorrow.

Thanks for the report.
