setting FORWARD_IPV4 in /etc/sysconfig/network fails
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
FORWARD_IPV4 set to true in /etc/sysconfig/network does not set
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward to 1 as it did in 6.1. Happened on my
home firewall/masquerade box running rc1.2.
This has been moved to the net.ipv4.ip_forward variable in /etc/sysctl.conf,
but the installer needs to be modified to stop adding FORWARD_IPV4 to
/etc/sysconfig/network. Failing that, initscripts might need to migrate the
setting to preserve compatibility with older machines and upgrades.
initscripts *does* migrate the settings on upgrade; however,
it won't check for changes made *after* the upgrade.
This should be covered in the release notes.
Assigned to the installer so we can check it there.
Fixed in latest internal version.
