Description Andrew Savchenko gentoo-dev 2012-09-06 11:52:26 UTC

as of cancd-0.1.0-r2, netconsole init script fails to start:

# rc-config start netconsole
Starting init script
netconsole   | * Source device invalid.
netconsole   | * ERROR: netconsole failed to start

This happens not because source device is invalid, but because the following command from init script fails:
LC_ALL=C /sbin/ifconfig "${DEVICE}" 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null

ifconfig is now located in /bin, not /sbin (net-tools-1.60_p20120127084908).

As a solution path must be either changed to /bin or removed at all to be compatible with all versions.

I'm going to apply the following patch and bump to -r3 in two weeks if there are no objections.
