Description Rob Scott 2006-08-22 08:02:52 UTC
The current version of ether-wake in  net-tools-1.60-patches-1.1.tar.bz2 is 1.05. This version lacks support for /etc/ethers. The latest version of ether-wake (1.09) adds this. I obtained etherwake_1.09.orig.tar.gz from;O=D
compiled and ran it in my gentoo environment. Seems to work as expected.

Apparently, net-tools-1.60-r12 in the testing branch contains the updated version of ether-wake. Adding sys-apps/net-tools ~x86 to /etc/portage/package.keywords will enable the testing version.
