* Thu Apr 03 1997 Erik Troan <>
  - Created ifup-post from old ifup
  - PPP, PLIP, and generic ifup use ifup-post
* Fri Mar 28 1997 Erik Troan <>
  - Added DHCP support
  - Set hostname via reverse name lookup after configuring a networking
    device if the current hostname is (none) or localhost
* Tue Mar 18 1997 Erik Troan <>
  - Got rid of xargs dependency in halt script
  - Don't mount /proc twice (unmount it in between)
  - sulogin and filesystem unmounting only happened for a corrupt root
    filesystem -- it now happens when other filesystems are corrupt as well
* Tue Mar 04 1997 Michael K. Johnson <>
  PPP fixes and additions
* Mon Mar 03 1997 Erik Troan <>
  Mount proc before trying to start kerneld so we can test for /proc/ksyms
* Wed Feb 26 1997 Michael K. Johnson <>
  Added MTU for PPP.
  Put PPPOPTIONS at the end of the options string instead of at the
  beginning so that they override other options.  Gives users more rope...
  Don't do module-based stuff on non-module systems.  Ignore errors if
  st module isn't there and we try to load it.
* Tue Feb 25 1997 Michael K. Johnson <>
  Changed ifup-ppp and ifdown-ppp not to use doexec, because the argv[0]
  provided by doexec goes away when pppd gets swapped out.
  ifup-ppp now sets remotename to the logical name of the device.
  This will BREAK current PAP setups on netcfg-managed interfaces,
  but we needed to do this to add a reasonable interface-specific
  PAP editor to netcfg.
* Fri Feb 07 1997 Erik Troan <>
  1) Added usernetctl wrapper for user mode ifup and ifdown's and man page
  2) Rewrote ppp and slip kill and retry code
  3) Added doexec and man page
