Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441152
won't accept an interrupt or simple kill
Last modified: 2008-04-06 20:09:24 EDT
Description of problem:
run dhcp6c -D -f ethX
attempt to control-C out: it notices the signal, but won't exit
suspend it, attempt to kill, it doesn't exit.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is fixed in at least dhcpv6-1.0.14 and higher, which are in rawhide. F-8 has a very very old
release of this software.
I recently took over the dhcpv6 project. It had been abandoned upstream and we (Red Hat and others)
have been aggressively working on it since November of 2007 to comply with all RFCs and pass all TAHI
tests. F-8 has the last upstream release before I took over the project. I have resurrected the project
I'd love it if you could work with the latest upstream release and see how that's working in your
environment. I have been participating in IETF interoperability test session with this software to see
how it works against other vendors' implementations. So far the results have been more positive than I
would have thought. F-9 will have the latest upstream release of dhcpv6 in it. If you'd like to see it in
F-8 instead, let me know and I'll push out an update package for F-8.
