Bug Fix Advisory iproute bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1153-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated iproute packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The iproute packages provide networking utilities like ip and rtmon, which use
the advanced networking capabilities of the Linux kernel.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the print_route() could, udner circumstances use the
wrong "hz" value. As a consequence, the "ip route show" option returned an
incorrect value for rto_min (minimum TCP retransmission timeout). This update
modifies the underlying code to identify the different "hz" values. Now, the
correct rto_min value is displayed. (BZ#738965)

* Prior to this update, the tc command-line utility generated a wrong filter
match for the IPv6 "priority", the resulting match did not reflect the IPv6
header field proper. This update modifies the underlying code to match the IPv6
"Priority" header as expected. (BZ#751285)

All users of iproute are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs.
