+1 for getting this implemented for FC2.
I think it'd be a great treat, but we'll need to be careful about the
routing if you bring up the device if wireless or something else is
already up.


+1 also from me. Just downloaded and compiled the stuff, it works really well. Really handy I have to say.

For people who can't wait for Fedora Core 2. Here's what you need to do.
It took me a while before I got it to run so here it is what you should do.

1. Download libdaemon from http://0pointer.de/lennart/projects/libdaemon/
2. Untar the tarball
3. ./configure --prefix=/usr
4. make
5. make install
6. Download ifplugd from
7. untar the tarball
8. ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
9. make
10. make install

The script starting ifplugd daemon is then in /etc/init.d
Only thing more to do is putting symbolic links in all rcX.d dir's by
running the following commands

ln -s /etc/rc0.d/K89ifplugd /etc/init.d/ifplugd
ln -s /etc/rc1.d/K89ifplugd /etc/init.d/ifplugd
ln -s /etc/rc6.d/K89ifplugd /etc/init.d/ifplugd

ln -s /etc/rc2.d/S11ifplugd /etc/init.d/ifplugd
ln -s /etc/rc3.d/S11ifplugd /etc/init.d/ifplugd
ln -s /etc/rc4.d/S11ifplugd /etc/init.d/ifplugd
ln -s /etc/rc5.d/S11ifplugd /etc/init.d/ifplugd

Finally you have to edit /etc/ifplugd/ifplugd.conf
to add the network devices on which you want to use ifplugd

In the tarball there are also spec files. So maybe somebody can put can make rpm's out of these two tarballs (I still have to find out some day how building rpm's works) and put them in the fedora.us repository already.


BTW My PCMCIA wireless LAN doesn't seem to need this utility. It comes up automatically already. Does PCMCIA issue an ifup automatically
