Description David Acker 2006-03-17 12:40:55 EST
Description of problem:
The version of if_ether.h put in /usr/include/linux by glibc-kernheaders does
not include the define for the VLAN type, 802.1Q.  The kernel version of
if_ether.h does include this.  It is:
#define ETH_P_8021Q	0x8100          /* 802.1Q VLAN Extended Header  */

This is needed since raw sockets (PF_PACKET, SOCK_RAW) can see this tag.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is true in glibc-kernheaders-2.4-9.1.94 through glibc-kernheaders-3.0-5.2.
The kernel version of if_ether.h has had the VLAN define as far back as 2.4.18.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 2 David Acker 2007-01-22 13:39:13 EST
It is fixed in kernel-headers-2.6.19-1.2912.fc7 and
kernel-headers-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 so I am closing it.
