Description Michal Schmidt 2010-03-27 21:41:30 UTC
Created attachment 403046 [details]
sendmail.nm-dispatcher handle VPN connections too

As a solution to bug 451575 sendmail got a NetworkManager dispatcher script to make sure it resolves DNS names correctly after an interface goes up or down.

It does not work for VPN interfaces created by NetworkManager-openvpn though.

For me it causes a problem because the name of the smarthost I have configured for sendmail resolves to a different IP address when I am connected to VPN, but sendmail does not notice the change.

The attached patch fixes it. For VPN connections NM does not pass "up" and "down" to the dispatcher scripts, but "vpn-up" and "vpn-down" (see: man 8 NetworkManager).

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 15:50:48 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.

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 13'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 13 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:

I don't have F13 anywhere anymore. It works fine in F14.
