RHEL6: Please synchronize ethtool with latest from Fedora Rawhide
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:36:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Please synchronize ethtool for RHEL6 with latest from Fedora Rawhide. Ethtool
>= 2.20090115git.fc11 must make it into RHEL 6 as there are new features and
also fixes which are currently not in RHEL 5. I of course understand, that this
won't go into RHEL 5.x, but for RHEL6 this must happen.
Changelog from latest ethtool is e.g. in /usr/share/doc/ethtool-*/ChangeLog.git in the latest Fedora package. To explain myself, I'm the co-maintainer of
ethtool in Fedora and we shouldn't lack the new features of ethtool in RHEL6.

this) - thank you.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Updating to latest ethtool from Fedora Rawhide will also solve bug #477498,

Ah! This is a request by me as Fedora contributor, I can't query the Red Hat
Product Management for this. I'm the Fedora ethtool package co-maintainer, so
this is an improvement of ethtool in next Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
Fixed in 'ethtool-6-7.20090323git.el6', included in compose 'RHEL6.0-20091027.3'.
Moving to ON_QA.
