emellor@7962 1 Command Incompatibilities
emellor@7962 2 =========================
emellor@7962 3
emellor@7962 4 Known incompatibilities with various commands on various distributions, and
emellor@7962 5 the workarounds we use.
emellor@7962 6
emellor@7962 7
emellor@7962 8 brctl
emellor@7962 9 -----
emellor@7962 10
emellor@7962 11 brctl show <bridge> fails on SLES9 SP2. Workaround is to use brctl show
emellor@7962 12 without arguments, and grep, though this would be difficult were you to need
emellor@7962 13 to check for a specific bridge-interface pair, since brctl does not show the
emellor@7962 14 bridge name on every line.
emellor@7962 15
emellor@7962 16
emellor@7962 17 ifup / ifdown
emellor@7962 18 -------------
emellor@7962 19
emellor@7962 20 SuSE requires an extra parameter to ifup, which is created by calling getcfg
emellor@7962 21 appropriately. See xen-network-common.sh for details.
emellor@7962 22
emellor@7962 23 Gentoo doesn't have ifup/ifdown; appropriate alternatives are defined in
emellor@7962 24 xen-network-common.sh.
