Update of iputils starts rdisc, breaking connectivity
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:01 EST
did a yum update, which upgraded to iputils 20070202-1.fc6
I didn't have rdisc running, and had it disabled in all runlevels
the upgrade started it, which killed my network connectivity
Looks like a script issue in the packaging
This issue should be fixed in iputils-20070202-2.fc6
It's not fixed
[root@slartibartfast ~]# chkconfig --list rdisc
rdisc 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
rdisc isn't running
I do a yum update, which takes me from
rdisc gets started, with resultant network breakage....
During update process rpm first install new package and then remove the old one.
IFAIK the last script executed during the update (in this case) is faulty
%postun from iputils-20070202-1.fc6.
The only way (i know of) how to avoid restarting rdisc daemon during update is
to update iputils with rpm
# rpm -Uvh --nopostun <path to>/iputils-20070202-3.fc6.rpm
Update from version iputils-20070202-3 and above should work as required.
