vpnc malfunction caused by iproute2

Reported by: szomi@… Owned by: jow
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


I build an image from trunk with vpnc support.
Unfortunately the vpnc is not connecting, because the
bug of iproute2.

I found the solution on this website

The patch I used is available at:
(I made the patching by hand)

in iproute.c


+ filter.cloned = 2;

req.n.nlmsg_len = NLMSG_LENGTH(sizeof(struct rtmsg));
req.n.nlmsg_flags = NLM_F_REQUEST;

Somebody correct the trunk with this patch please.

I can confirm that this patch fixes the problem. I was getting no output from commands like

ip route get

and with the patch applied, the behavior I had with the 8.09 release is restored.
