Description Matthias Hensler 2013-03-13 08:20:08 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL 6.4 introduces haproxy as technology preview. With RHEL 6.3 and older the haproxy-package was provided by EPEL.

However, while the EPEL-package did provide TPROXY support, the new package from RHEL does not.

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

If possible new haproxy-packages should be provide TPROXY support. To do so the parameter "USE_LINUX_TPROXY=1" is needed in the buildprocess of the package.
Comment 2 Ryan O'Hara 2013-03-19 12:20:00 EDT
I believe TPROXY was not enabled because the build target is set to "linux26". This should probably be set to "linux2628", which would cause USE_LINUX_TPROXY to be implicit.
Comment 3 Paul Wouters 2013-04-06 19:17:28 EDT
I just ran into this too. please add USE_LINUX_TPROXY=1 to the make line.

Comment 10 michal novacek 2013-09-03 03:50:17 EDT
I have verified that there is TARGET = linux2628 which makes USE_TPROXY=1 implicit: 

# rpm -q haproxy

# /usr/sbin/haproxy -vv
HA-Proxy version 1.4.24 2013/06/17
Copyright 2000-2013 Willy Tarreau <w@1wt.eu>

Build options :
  TARGET  = linux2628
  CPU     = generic
  CC      = gcc
  CFLAGS  = -O2 -g -fno-strict-aliasing

Default settings :
  maxconn = 2000, bufsize = 16384, maxrewrite = 8192, maxpollevents = 200

Encrypted password support via crypt(3): yes

Available polling systems :
     sepoll : pref=400,  test result OK
      epoll : pref=300,  test result OK
       poll : pref=200,  test result OK
     select : pref=150,  test result OK
Total: 4 (4 usable), will use sepoll.
