Description Mike Gahagan 2006-09-19 13:25:40 EDT
Description of problem:
init.ipv6-global either consumes all cpu & half of system memory or segfaults
with ipv6 enabled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-8.40-1

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.If system is already running with networking enabled, /etc/init.d/network stop
will cause init.ipv6-global to use all of a CPU and roughly 200MB of RAM until
killed.
2. This usually results in a hang then segfault during boot.
3.
  
Actual results:
Network doesn't go down or system hangs.

Expected results:
Network starts/stops/restarts normally.

Additional info:

setting NETWORKING_IPV6=no in /etc/sysconfig/network gets around the problem and
makes the system usable.
Comment 1 Mike Gahagan 2006-09-19 13:36:25 EDT
It looks like that when we call 'init.ipv6-global stop pre' from
/etc/init.d/network we get stuck in an infinite loop. you can also duplicate the
same behavior by calling init.ipv6-global from the command line. 


+ ACTION=stop
+ POSITION=pre
+ '[' yes = yes ']'
+ '[' -f /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/network-functions-ipv6 ']'
+ . /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/network-functions-ipv6
++ . ./network-functions-ipv6
+++ . ./network-functions-ipv6
++++ . ./network-functions-ipv6
