Description Chris Ricker 2007-04-05 10:33:45 EDT

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
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2007-04-16 12:01:28 EDT
It's not fixed

[root@slartibartfast ~]# chkconfig --list rdisc
rdisc           0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
[root@slartibartfast ~]# 

rdisc isn't running

I do a yum update, which takes me from




rdisc gets started, with resultant network breakage....
Comment 3 Martin Bacovsky 2007-08-06 11:01:32 EDT
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.
