Description Martin von Gagern 2007-06-13 17:06:44 UTC
I'm trying to follow the setup described in but I can't add a route to a specific table, it will always be added to the table "main". Feels like a bug in iproute2 to me.

Steps to reproduce:
 ip route add dev ppp0 table 100
 ip route show table 100
 ip route show table main
Expected result:
 route listed in table 100 but not listed in table main
Actual result:
 route listed in table main, table 100 still empty

I just found out that I had to set CONFIG_IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER and CONFIG_IP_MULTIPLE_TABLES for my kernel, and after this it works.

Still it feels like an error to silently ignore an unsupported argument; I talked to some debian user and he recalled getting some error message under these circumstances.
