Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 171679
'ip tunnel add sit1 mode sit' fails -EINVAL.
Last modified: 2008-07-24 15:31:54 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.
glibc-kernheaders is now fixed.
