Is this definitely the case with initscripts 2.88dsf-13.6 /after/ a reboot? It's working fine for me: # ls -l /etc/network/run lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 May 13 20:15 /etc/network/run -> /dev/shm/network # ls -l /etc/network/run/ total 4 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 16 May 13 20:17 ifstate # cat /etc/network/run/ifstate lo=lo eth0=eth0 # ls -l /dev/shm lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 May 13 20:17 /dev/shm -> /run/shm ls -l /run/shm total 0 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 60 May 13 20:17 network Note that 2.88dsf-13.6 switched the /dev/shm symbolic link to being an absolute link (/run/shm, not ../run/shm). But you'll need to reboot (or rerun mountall.sh after deleting the link) to fix it up--it may well be the relative link that's causing problems for ifupdown. > Wouldn't it be better to upload a NMU for ifupdown incorporating the > proposed modifications first and adding a versioned Breaks to > initscripts 2.88dsf-13.6 accordingly? Certainly if this is still broken. If you could confirm the above for me, that would be great. If it is, we'll fix ifupdown first. Thanks for the testing so far. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
