Default Heads Up - sys-apps/net-tools-1.60_p20120127084908 might break your system

Hi,
I've just been bitten by sys-apps/net-tools-1.60_p20120127084908.

After reboot, the network doesn't come up:

localhost /etc/init.d/net.lo[3463]: ERROR: interface lo does not exist
localhost /etc/init.d/net.lo[3464]: Ensure that you have loaded the
correct kernel module for your hardware

localhost /etc/init.d/net.lo[3381]: ERROR: net.lo failed to start
localhost /etc/init.d/net.eth0[3549]: ERROR: interface eth0 does not
exist
localhost /etc/init.d/net.eth0[3550]: Ensure that you have loaded the
correct kernel module for your hardware

localhost /etc/init.d/net.eth0[3466]: ERROR: net.eth0 failed to start

It's NOT a kernel matter since stepping back to
sys-apps/net-tools-1.60_p20111120203157 with the same kernel does work.

Helmut.

I've just got an email from Samuli Suominen that this is a bug
in openrc-0.9.9.2 which has just been fixed by openrc-0.9.9.3

I've anyone is hit by this and doesn't have a way to download an older
version anymore, the solution is fairly simple:


ln -s /bin/ifconfig /sbin/
/etc/init.d/net.lo restart
/etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart
rm /sbin/ifconfig
[sync and update world]

(Substitute "eth0" with whatever you're using.)
