the bug has been tested PASS with dhcpv6-1.0.4-1.el5.i386.rpm 
dhcpv6-client-1.0.4-1.el5.i386.rpm  libdhcp6client-1.0.4-1.el5.i386.rpm.

Comment 4 Zhiyong Wu 2008-02-22 06:55:20 UTC
the test cases still FAIL On RHEL5.2 with dhcpv6-1.0.10

for more details, pls refer to


Comment 6 Denise Dumas 2008-02-27 15:24:42 UTC
In order to debug this problem, we need the test case for RHEL 5.2 with an exact
reproducer, including output with verbose debugging messages from the DHCPV6
software.  One way to do this would be to extract the commands that TAHI runs.
The man pages for dhcp6s, dhcp6r, and dhcp6c all show how to generate verbose
debug messages. 

Comment 8 David Cantrell 2008-03-12 20:15:31 UTC
Fixed in dhcpv6-1.0.10-2.el5.
