iproute2 should be listed as "iproute2" everywhere, not a mixture of
"IPRoute2", "IProute2", etc.
"contains programs for basic networking" -> "contains programs for basic
and advanced IPV4-based networking"
The iproute2 patch is not in the patches download area at all as best I
can tell, under any name.
The program removed by the patch is "arpd", not "arp".
Berkeley DB has been called SleepyCat DB for quite some time now...
should we continue referring to it as Berkeley DB? Also, why is
Remove "eth0:1" as an example interface name, iproute2 does not support
Still shows NETMASK=24, needs to be PREFIX=24.
"equivalent NIC (Network Interface Card)" -> "interface"... an interface
does not have to be a NIC (two instances in this paragraph)
GATEWAY: "comment out the variable entirely" -> "don't include the
GATEWAY line in the configuration file"
under /etc/resolv.conf, why is "[Your Domain Name]" in curly braces?
I've never used those in /etc/resolv.conf
there are two references to "your DNS", as if the user owns or has
access to "a DNS"... this is poor wording. Instead, "your DNS" should be
"your assigned DNS resolver". "of the DNS most appropriate for your
setup" should be "of the DNS resolver assigned for your use".
