Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 166477
ethertap module has been left out of the kernel
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:21:36 EST
Description of problem:
The latest kernel build has left out the ethertap module, which has been
included for quite a long time. So the tap device does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modprobe ethertap
FATAL: Module ethertap not found.
This isn't in the upstream 2.6 kernel any more. Applications depending on it
should be rewritten to use the tun/tap driver aparently.
