Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 108208
mtr update is necessary and there are patches for IPv6 support at mtr
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:13:01 EST
Description of problem:
1. mtr-0.52-3 is old - mtr-0.54 was released months ago - with a lot of fixes
2. mtr has no IPv6 support - so I searched for patches (KAME and so on) and I
found good working patches which should be really included.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Updated mtr and IPv6 support at mtr.
I attached a actual new mtr src.rpm with working IPv6 support including the
patches and a changed spec file.
Please have a look to it. I would be happy, if I can find that one in
Created attachment 95554 [details]
Updated mtr-0.54 with well-working IPv6 support src.rpm
Here is the updated mtr-0.54 with well-working IPv6 support source rpm for
I had occasions where xmtr would hang. I rebuilt the package using
the new .054 src from the authors site. I have not had any hangs since.
Did you try it with the version 0.54 from Rawhide/Development, too?
So when does it hang exactly? Maybe there are problems caused by my patches...
Add me to the (long) list of networking people who'd really like
to see IPv6 support in mtr...
Well, the package above provides IPv6 support in mtr, if you rebuild
But nobody of the Red Hat maintainers still wants to add it to
May you test it - as I do it since September 2003 - and report found
bugs here, no one did it yet, but I don't know how many users tested
that patched mtr...
I still think, it's important to provide IPv6 support at mtr. So
there is IPv6 support at 'ping' and 'traceroute' already!
Phil, will we get any comment or are we just wasting our time?
I've looked at the patches today and they seem to look good to me, too.
Included them in the latest mtr-0.54-4 package which should hit
rawhide real soon.
Read ya, Phil
Thank you Phil! Appreciated!
Hm, did you push the update yet to rawhide? it didn't surface yet:
Logged in to download.fedora.redhat.com.

Directory successfully changed.
ncftp ...core/development/SRPMS > ls -l mtr*

Would like to start testing asap...
I'm sorry to say that, but I can't find the package in the lastest
development push (23-Feb-2004 06:31):
mtr-0.54-3.src.rpm 17-Feb-2004 00:27 97k
"-3" was a simple rebuild, no new included patches. Could you please
push the update to development? Thank you :)
As i've already posted to f-c-d, it must have slipped through one of
my 1001 other prio 1 things as the whole stuff has been in CVS for
quite some time.
It's in the buildsystem atm, so should really hit rawhide now today or
Sorry again for the delay,
Read ya, Phil
(Just too many releases right now at the same time *sigh*).
