Description Sean Middleditch 2004-01-22 16:21:10 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Gecko/20031114 Epiphany/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Every time my machine boots, the line
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
is added to /etc/modules.conf, even tho it is already present both
there and in /etc/modprobe.conf.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora-devel 20040122

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable IPv6
2. reboot several times


Actual Results:  noticed proliferation of net-pf-10 aliases in

Expected Results:  if this alias is needed, it shouldn't be added to
the modules.conf file if it is already present.

Additional info:

IPv6 is enabled with NETWORKING_IPV6=yes in /etc/sysconfig/network and
the following lines in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:

All packages are up-to-date as of 20030122.  Sorry for not having the
proper package, but I've no idea what is adding that line to the
system on bootup.  I have not modified any of the system startup
scripts, other than adding the above lines for IPv6 support.

Is this still an issue with FC development today?

elanthis@stargrazer:~$ cat /etc/modules.conf
alias eth0 via-rhine
alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L
>/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S
>/dev/null 2>&1 || :
alias char-major-195* nvidia
alias nfs4 nfs
alias rpc_pipefs sunrpc
alias rpc_svc_gss_pipefs sunrpc
alias usb-controller uchi-hcd
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 ipv6

Unless the bug was fixed within the last week, then yes.  I'd reboot
to test it for sure, but that wouldn't be very convenient at the
moment... ^^;

Looking at line 41 in /etc/init.d/network, I think the bug is the
alias assignment.  After cleaning out /etc/modules.conf so there is
only one alias net-pf-10 ipv6 line, I get this:

elanthis@stargrazer:~$ /sbin/modprobe -c | awk '/^alias net-pf-10 / {
print $3 }'

So the alias assignment is equaling "ipv6\nipv6" which, thus, doesn't
match "ipv6" and thus the if clause is executed.

I'm reassigning this bug to initscripts as this is really something
that goes wrong there. None of the net tools touch/write
/etc/modules.conf (except system-config-network, but thats a
completely different beast ;-).

Read ya, Phil

Gack, that should have been nuked a long time ago.

Will be fixed in 7.51-1.
