Known networking bugs

Only platform bugs that can influence various application and/or the overall behavior of the system belong here.

Kernel

libnl

  • rtnl_link_bond_add() succeeds when device already exists
  • rtnl_link_bridge_add() and rtnl_link_vlan_add missing

iproute

  • ip link show won't distinguish bridges and bonds
  • ip link show won't show vlan id
  • ip -6 route shows cached routes (ip -4 route doesn't)

glibc

Upstream bug reports for getaddrinfo

dhclient

Avahi

NetworkManager

Testing tools

Various applications

  • Assume that getaddrinfo() returns only one address and/or that such the first returned address works. See Networking/NameResolution.
