+
+  FAQ
+
+    1. Q: I want to use ifplugd with my PCMCIA device, but ifplugd quits
+       when it doesn't find eth0, when I have not inserted the card. What
+       can I do?
+       A: Use the -f switch. This is not very clean however, since
+       modprobe is called on each cable detection query of ifplugd to
+       load a module for the network device. This is suboptimal. You
+       should probably run ifplugd only when the card is really inserted.
+    2. Q: I am using the -f switch, but the kernel logs are getting
+       filled with messages like "modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module
+       eth0". What can I do?
+       A: Make sure you have a line like alias eth0 off in your
+       /etc/modules.conf
+    3. Q: When the cable is unplugged and the interface shut down it is
+       still available with ifconfig and markes as UP. Why this?
+       A: ifplugd cannot detect the link beat with a shut down interface
+       on certain (most as of kernel 2.4.19) network drivers. Thus
+       ifplugd enables the interface before querying the link status.
+       This may be switched off with -a flag. You might want to use it if
+       you have a sane network driver (e.g. eepro100). The subdirectory
+       patches/ in the ifplugd distribution includes a patch for the
+       8139too 0.9.26 driver, which makes the driver compatible with -a.
+       Don't ask me how to apply this patch. If you don't know, you won't
+       need it.
+    4. Q: Does it work with anything else than plain ethernet or wireless
+       LAN?
+       A: Certainly not, since the MII and ETHTOOL ioctl()s and the
+       wireless extension don't exist on other network device types.
+    5. Q: I have a Realtek 8139 based network card. Everytime ifplugd
+       starts on bootup my machine freezes. What can I do?
+       A: This is a bug in the 8139too driver 0.9.25 (at least) shipped
+       with Linux 2.4.19, please upgrade to 8139too 0.9.26 (Linux 2.4.20
+       or seperately at
+       [33]http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/gkernel/).
+    6. Q: There are already laptop-net's ifd and miid, why did you write
+       your own daemon?
+       A: laptop-net was too integrated with its profile system and
+       didn't work on my hardware when I had a look on it. It seemed
+       easier to me to write a simple but feature complete replacement
+       than using laptop-net without most of the special features
+       disabled. I didn't know about miid when I wrote ifplugd, but in
+       any case ifplugd is much better than miid. For a comparison of
+       miid and ifplugd, have a look on
+       [34]http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=162763&repeat
+       merged=yes
+    7. Q: I have two interfaces (e.g. WLAN and copper ethernet), both
+       controlled by ifplugd, and want to force the network traffic to go
+       over the faster one of them, in case both are available at the
+       same time. How can I do this?
+       A: A tool I wrote called [35]ifmetric might be exactly what you're
+       looking for.

-  FAQ
-
-    1. Q: I want to use ifplugd with my PCMCIA device, but ifplugd quits
-       when it doesn't find eth0, when I have not inserted the card. What
-       can I do?
-       A: Use the -f switch. This is not very clean however, since
-       modprobe is called on each cable detection query of ifplugd to
-       load a module for the network device. This is suboptimal. You
-       should probably run ifplugd only when the card is really inserted.
-    2. Q: I am using the -f switch, but the kernel logs are getting
-       filled with messages like "modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module
-       eth0". What can I do?
-       A: Make sure you have a line like alias eth0 off in your
-       /etc/modules.conf
-    3. Q: When the cable is unplugged and the interface shut down it is
-       still available with ifconfig and markes as UP. Why this?
-       A: ifplugd cannot detect the link beat with a shut down interface
-       on certain (most as of kernel 2.4.19) network drivers. Thus
-       ifplugd enables the interface before querying the link status.
-       This may be switched off with -a flag. You might want to use it if
-       you have a sane network driver (e.g. eepro100). The subdirectory
-       patches/ in the ifplugd distribution includes a patch for the
-       8139too 0.9.26 driver, which makes the driver compatible with -a.
-       Don't ask me how to apply this patch. If you don't know, you won't
-       need it.
-    4. Q: Does it work with anything else than plain ethernet or wireless
-       LAN?
-       A: Certainly not, since the MII and ETHTOOL ioctl()s and the
-       wireless extension don't exist on other network device types.
-    5. Q: I have a Realtek 8139 based network card. Everytime ifplugd
-       starts on bootup my machine freezes. What can I do?
-       A: This is a bug in the 8139too driver 0.9.25 (at least) shipped
-       with Linux 2.4.19, please upgrade to 8139too 0.9.26 (Linux 2.4.20
-       or seperately at
-       [33]http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/gkernel/).
-    6. Q: There are already laptop-net's ifd and miid, why did you write
-       your own daemon?
-       A: laptop-net was too integrated with its profile system and
-       didn't work on my hardware when I had a look on it. It seemed
-       easier to me to write a simple but feature complete replacement
-       than using laptop-net without most of the special features
-       disabled. I didn't know about miid when I wrote ifplugd, but in
-       any case ifplugd is much better than miid. For a comparison of
-       miid and ifplugd, have a look on
-       [34]http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=162763&repeat
-       merged=yes
-    7. Q: I have two interfaces (e.g. WLAN and copper ethernet), both
-       controlled by ifplugd, and want to force the network traffic to go
-       over the faster one of them, in case both are available at the
-       same time. How can I do this?
-       A: A tool I wrote called [35]ifmetric might be exactly what you're
-       looking for.

-Installation
-
-   As this package is made with the GNU autotools you should run
-   ./configure inside the distribution directory for configuring the
-   source tree. After that you should run make for compilation and make
-   install (as root) for installation of ifplugd.
-
-   The installation scripts create an init script in
-   ${sysconfdir}/init.d/ifplugd, however no /etc/rc?.d/ links are created
-   for it.
-
-   Extensive installation instructions for installation of ifplugd on
-   Fedora Core 1 are available at [37]Geoff Ericksson's web site.
