And I'm now a little more educated. Thanks for the info. I do appreciate it.

I did read the source, but... honestly, my mental stamina has been suffering for a couple weeks now, since I'm doing more (literal) heavy lifting at work. 9 hrs/day, 6 days per week.

So, getting back to the topic , does anyone have any bugs or issues to report with the new rc.inet1 or netconfig scripts?

hi tadgy, so far it works for me on a simplistic static ipv4 configuration

removepkg network-scripts-14.2-noarch-1.txz
installpkg network-scripts-15.0_ipv6_vlan_bond_b4360625-noarch-1_rlw.txz 
mv /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.bak
mv /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf.bak
mv /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
mv /etc/rc.d/ /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 eth0_restart

I've corrected a bug in rc.inet1 which was preventing clean use of the *_restart operation.

The updated rc.inet1 script is in the repository linked from the first post in this thread - I'd be very grateful if more people could test rc.inet1 and netconfig to make sure things work as expected.
