Description Jay Berkenbilt 2003-02-23 15:38:05 EST
Description of problem:

If you have a dummy network interface configured, then open office outputs:

SIOCGIFADDR got '00:00:00:00:00:00' multiple times while it runs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. ifconfig dummy0 netmask up
2. oowriter &      [from commandline so you can see its output]

Actual results:

The above message is issued from time to time.

Expected results:

It shouldn't complain about this.  It should just silently ignore it.

Additional info:

Setting an explicit hardware address, as in:

ip link set dummy0 address 00:00:00:00:00:01

prevents this output.

OOo needs to know certain things about the network for a variety of
functions...  I think we're stuck with this for the time being...
