Description Michael Cronenworth 2009-02-18 17:21:31 EST
Description of problem: When I attempt to use the '-R' command line argument option for 'ping' I receive a message instead of the expected ping results. This occurs on Fedora 10. Rawhide and Fedora 9 are apparently not affected. This is not specific to a unique DNS name or IP address. It occurs with any IP or DNS name given. SELinux set to enforced and then permissive. No change.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-, iputils-20071127-6.fc10

How reproducible: Always

Actual results:
$ ping -R intranet
  ping: record route: No message of desired type

Expected results:
$ ping -R intranet
  PING intranet.cchtml.com ( 56(124) bytes of data.
  64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=65 time=0.091 ms

Just for the record, rawhide is affected, but seemingly only i386, not x86_64.

cheers, Kyle

Could you please try the scratch build available here when it's finished http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1140959?

regards, Kyle
Comment 3 Michael Cronenworth 2009-02-19 18:55:54 EST
That kernel works great. Thanks, Kyle and friends.
Comment 4 Mihai Harpau 2009-02-20 09:39:06 EST
For me kernel- does not resolve the issue (on PAE-i686 and x86_64):

[mihai@taz ~]$ ping -R localhost
ping: record route: No message of desired type
[mihai@taz ~]$ uname -a
Linux taz #1 SMP Wed Feb 18 18:07:29 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


[mihai@sysop ~]$ ping -R localhost
ping: record route: No message of desired type
[mihai@sysop ~]$ uname -a
Linux sysop #1 SMP Wed Feb 18 18:17:56 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

The same problem appears on kernel- (PAE-i686 and x86_64).
Comment 5 Kyle McMartin 2009-02-20 16:42:29 EST
Mihai, are you sure you're running the correct build of the kernel? I've confirmed it fixed on both i686-PAE and x86_64...

That said, Paul Moore has updated the patch, so if you could try the scratchbuild here (sorry I failed to set buildid sensibly last time...) that would be great.


Thanks in advance, Kyle
Comment 6 Mihai Harpau 2009-02-21 03:27:02 EST
Sorry, I think I was wrong because the kernels from first URL have the same name with those from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=83287 :)
Ok, I will try the kernels from last URL and come back with results.
Comment 7 Mihai Harpau 2009-02-22 11:33:13 EST
I can confirm that kernels from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1143272 fixed the bug. Thanks.
Comment 8 Kyle McMartin 2009-02-22 15:04:19 EST
Great, thanks for testing. I can confirm this as well. I've committed it to the Fedora kernel on the rawhide, F-10, F-10-2.6.27 and F-9-2.6.27 branches, and it will be in the next upload of each them respectively.

Marking closed.

cheers, Kyle
