1 Hey guys.
3 I have made some small changes to the default /etc/inid.d/net.eth0 and
4 /etc/conf.d/net. These changes simply add functionality alowing for an
5 alternate ip config should dhcpcd fail to find a server. I made these
6 small changes because I use a labtop and when I would boot away from my
7 network apache, fam, and other needed daemons would fail causing poblems
8 for many programs (at least ones I run) and this prevents this. Anyway
9 I have included the files. Please look at them and tell me what you
10 think. I have CLEARLY marked what I changed.
12 I'm very sorry if this is the wrong place to submit this. I looked for
13 a good place honest and this is what I ended up with.
15 Also I have a question to put out. Does anyone have a good reason not
16 to add a force option to emerge. The way I see it the worst that can
17 happen is the package fails to build. I have had a couple our users ask
18 for this in #gentoo irc the last couple of days and I wouldn't mind
19 seeing it my self. It wouldn't be hard to do maybe I could 'try' if no
20 one objects. It may also be needed to include a note with this function
21 that states using it could cause conflicks. I have been editing my
22 /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask and that get old fast when over
23 writen every sync.
25 Well thanks for listening.
