Description Štefan Gurský 2013-03-15 19:22:38 UTC
Description of problem:
iodine-server wants to run ifconfig (package net-tools), but its package does not have it in dependencies.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : iodine-server
Version     : 0.6.0
Release     : 0.rc1.9.fc18.1
Architecture: x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do not have net-tools installed
2. install iodine-server
3. try to start it
Actual results:

# LANG=C iodined -D -D -f -P password t.example.com

Debug level 2 enabled, will stay in foreground.
Add more -D switches to set higher debug level.
Opened dns0
Setting IP of dns0 to
sh: /sbin/ifconfig: No such file or directory

LANG C is so that error message is in english, higher debug level does not help.

Expected results:
tunnel set up

Additional info:
iodine creates command line in tun.c that uses ifconfig to set ip address and uses  system() to run it, so its package should depend on /sbin/ifconfig. It also need /sbin/route (or better it should use ip instead of ifconfig and route).

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2013-12-21 15:45:27 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '18'.

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 18's end of life.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be 
able to fix it before Fedora 18 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, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

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.
