this is not direclty a vserver related "problem/question" but it's
so I'm sending the question to this list. please don't blame me for
when adding an IP address using ifconfig, why is ifconfig adding a
route to the kernel routing table?
in most cases this is useful, but in some cases it isn't.
I heared from someone else (the programer of heartbeat), that this
doesn't happen on his suse 7.3/8.0 boxes.
is anyone else of you experiencing the same.
does anyone happen to know if this a kernel related problem?
I tested it on more than 5 linux servers (suse 7.3, suse 8.0), and
it's the same on all of them.
the kernel is self compiled, as well as the net-tools package
(ifconfig, route etc.).
# ifconfig eth0:1 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
# route -n
