Description Michael Cronenworth 2009-02-21 00:00:40 EST
Description of problem: I restarted my network switch, which looks like I "unplugged" the cable and plugged it back in. This cases radvd to segfault. Here's the messages from my syslog:
Feb 18 19:54:05 balthasar kernel: e1000: eth2: e1000_watchdog: NIC Link is Down
Feb 18 19:54:08 balthasar kernel: e1000: eth2: e1000_watchdog: NIC Link is Up 1000 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: RX/TX
Feb 18 19:54:11 balthasar radvd[2219]: interface eth2 seems to have come back up, trying to reinitialize

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:34:54 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

Updated the system to F10 and I no longer see segfaults.
