Description James Hogarth 2017-09-26 14:31:28 UTC
On linux the net-tools suite of utilities has been long since deprecated.

The relevant code that gets executed on Fedora and EPEL should be identified and patched out, with a suitable pull request upstream, to remove the dependency on any tool in the net-tools package and instead use suitable tools form iproute2.

Comment 1 James Hogarth 2017-10-04 08:38:58 UTC
Thanks for looking at this.

Reviewing the commit though it appears there's still a dependency:


CMD_ADD_ROUTE uses route which is part of net-tools where the appropriate iproute equivalent is to use the 'ip route' command

Comment 2 Vitezslav Crhonek 2017-10-04 09:09:58 UTC
Thanks, I'll fix that too.

Comment 3 Vitezslav Crhonek 2017-10-04 11:40:42 UTC
Hopefully, the net-tools replacement is complete now.
