Bug#590494: live-boot: ip= parses incorrectly
-- System Information:
Debian Release: squeeze/sid
APT prefers testing
APT policy: (500, 'testing')
Architecture: i386 (i686)
Kernel: Linux 2.6.32-3-686 (SMP w/2 CPU cores)
Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash
The manpage/documentation seem to indicate that the ip= option wants each interface seperated by commas and each field of a single interface to be seperated by colons.
The script looks for colons to seperate the interfaces and commas to seperate the fields.
Also, the order of fields differ between documentation and the script.
The script in question is 23networking from the source package. I didn't include any patches because I didn't know which should be changed, the script to match the man page or the man page to match the script.
