Description Ben Woodard 2014-07-18 19:22:15 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1121258 +++

Description of problem:

dracut sets interface parameters called valid_lft and preferred_lft but neither of these options are are documented in the man page. The values set are also listed when you print the interface's configuration.

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default 
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

but it takes a bit of digging to figure out what these values mean. These should be documented in the man page so that people know what they mean and how to set them.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 2 Pavel Šimerda (pavlix) 2015-03-13 20:54:38 UTC
Switching to rawhide as it's a rather minor documentation issue to be handled upstream. We might revisit the question of Fedora releases when it's done.
