RFE: Include tunctl for creation of tap devices
Last modified: 2008-07-03 14:38:26 EDT
Please include tunctl in qemu because afaik it is the only way to use qemu with
tap? network interfaces without the need to run qemu as root. As root one can
create a tap device for a special user with tunctl that can be used by that user
There are other packages which could do with tunctl. Actually it's probably
better off being combined into iproute2 and also having proper support for it
added to initscripts.
Will it become part of iproute2 or be supported in initscripts any time soon? If
not, I am going to package it as an individual package.

I have a new idea. It seems I should be able to create a patch for ifup to
support Virtual Interfaces that are created with tunctl. Would you accept such a
patch given it is in a good shape? How are the chances to get this into Fedora
8, when I write this patch, soon?
Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.
