#1943 closed defect (fixed)

modules "tunnel4.ko" and "tunnel6.ko" needed by various modules in kernel 2.6

Reported by: pittipatti@… Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Kamikaze 7.06
Component: kernel Version:
Keywords: tunnel ipv6 sit 6to4 xfrm xfrm4 xfrm6 ipsec ipip Cc:


The two modules tunnel4.ko (CONFIG_INET_TUNNEL) and tunnel6.ko (CONFIG_INET6_TUNNEL) get build but aren't included in any package.
They are needed by the following modules which complain

Unknown symbol xfrm4_tunnel_register
Unknown symbol xfrm4_tunnel_deregister


Unknown symbol xfrm6_tunnel_register
Unknown symbol xfrm6_tunnel_deregister


The modules that need tunnel4.ko are:

  • ipip.ko
  • sit.ko
  • xfrm4_tunnel.ko

The module that needs tunnel6.ko is:

  • xfrm6_tunnel.ko

Since tunnel4 is needed by more than one module, it's just 5k and for not dealing with even more dependencies, it would be a good idea to build it statically into the kernel (CONFIG_INET_TUNNEL=y).

Tunnel6 could be packed into kmod-ipsec6 since it is just needed there. But for reasons of consistency it would be a better idea to build it statically into the kernel, too.

tunnnel4 is actually packaged with kmod-ipip. tunnel6 is now packaged with xfrm6_tunnel since [7705]
