1.92.1.  RHBA-2009:1398: bug fix update

Updated ipvsadm packages that fix several bugs are now available.
ipvsadm is a utility to administer the IP Virtual Server services offered by the Linux kernel.
This update fixes the following bugs:
  • running "service ipvsadm status" returned the status code "0" (for "service is running") even when ipvsadm was stopped. The ipvsadm init script has been updated and ipvsadm now only returns "0" when it is, in fact, running. (BZ#232335)
  • ipvsadm's previous start priority, 08, meant it loaded before network. If the ipvsadm rule set contained virtual services using fwmarks, these rules did not load properly. ipvsadm's start priority is now 11, ensuring it loads after network and ensuring virtual services load after real network services. (BZ#472425)
  • previously you could install the debuginfo packages but, because the makefile stripped the symbol table, they contained no data. The ipvsadm makefile no longer strips the symbol table and installing the debuginfo packages adds ipvsadm.debug and the debugging source as expected. (BZ#500601)
Users of ipvsadm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
