Description David Woodhouse 2005-10-25 03:44:51 EDT
On big-endian machines, glibc-kernheaders' ip.h has an incorrect definition of
struct iphdr, with the 'version' and 'ihl' fields swapped. (bug #171678).

This means that attempting to create a tunnel fails. Once glibc-kernheaders is
fixed, we need to rebuild iproute.
Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2007-04-10 18:14:09 EDT
glibc-kernheaders is now fixed.
