Last modified: 2014-06-18 04:29:44 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL5 doest support the feature of mipv6 and dont find the code related with
mipv6 in the source code of rhel5 kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ike-mipv6 (version 1.0.4)
ct-nemo-ha (version 1.0.1)
ct-nemo-mr (version 1.0.1)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure TAHI test environment.
2. Run the TAHI test suite
3. After the test completes, check for the results
rhel5 doesn't support the feature of nemo
rhel5 can support the feature of nemo
dont find the code related with nemo in the source code of rhel5 kernel.

for project description. User space and kernel code can be found
here for 2.6.15:
Perhaps there is a newer patchset somewhere for later version of the kernel.
For feature requests we need to keep the USAGI folks in mind as they
tend to be who implements this stuff. This work is extremely non-trivial
in nature, so we will certainly need their help.
The mobile-ipv6 web site is an ancienct code base for basic MIPV6
support and NEMO that was integrated by the USAGI project.
The story is that the guys from Finland who did the mobile-ipv6.org stuff
worked together with USAGI to integrate as much of their collective work
as possible, considering feedback we gave to USAGI et al. during previous
All of the client side support for MIPV6 is in the upstream tree. The
rest is still pending. I am not aware of the status of NEMO, probably
that is even deeper down in the TODO list (NEMO is an extension to MIPV6,
so when MIPV6 is being asked for this does not imply NEMO).
It appears that the NEMO aspects of the work were picked up by the nautilus6
I took a look at the kernel patch they say is needed for 2.6.23:
and all of those minor fixes are in 2.6.24-rc1.
The rest appears to be a userland NEMO daemon component that they
The userland components are here:
We should be careful what we commit to RHEL6, this is a large and
complicated piece of technology and I am unsure what the state of it is.

Setting to 'distribution' if the userspace component is what's left.
The mipv6 userspace daemon is now part of Fedora but is still missing the NEMO bits as of now.
this issue has been resolved. the package should be in RHEL6 compose now.
going through package wrangler reviews. Move to ON_QA.
