- version 0.3.1
- filter devices not supported by libvirt API (fate#320557)
[- 0001-blacklist-ifcfg-files-ending-in-.orig-or-tilde-bnc-8.patch]
2014-09-02 -
- sanitize release line in specfile
2014-05-06 -
- blacklist ifcfg files ending in .orig or tilde (bnc#871600)
[+ 0001-blacklist-ifcfg-files-ending-in-.orig-or-tilde-bnc-8.patch]
2014-01-10 -
- version 0.3.0
- Added libnl version configure option and detection
- Obsoletes 0002-allow-wicked.patch, 0001-use-libnl3.patch
2013-12-17 -
- Applied a minimal 0002-allow-wicked.patch to accept wicked
as the network service (fate#316768).
- Renamed libnl3.patch to 0001-use-libnl3.patch
2013-10-25 -
- Add libnl3.patch to build with libnl3 open openSUSE 13.1+, this
fixes bnc#845540
2013-03-26 -
- version 0.2.8
- Added ChangeLog.git to dist archive and to devel package docs.
- Fixed ncf_close to not close logger as ncf_init did not open any.
This caused SEGV's in libvirt, that redirects the global logger
to itself and is using multiple ncf instances (bnc#811002).
- Fixed pthreads detection and source enablement in configure,
added an explicit configure --enable-pthreads option to spec
file to cause a failure on detection problems (bnc#811002).
- Fixed SEGV at parsing not existing BRIDGE_PATHCOSTS and memory
leaks in in loop check, xml parsing and on backup file creation
failure while routes file rewrite (bnc#810381).
2013-01-25 -
- version 0.2.7
- Fixed a bridge variable initialization in try_bridge
- Use --enable-network-service on openSUSE >= 12.3 (bnc#798348)
- Check the network.service alias link instead of NETWORKMANAGER
variable in /etc/sysconfig/network/config, when requested by
the --enable-network-service configure option.
2012-07-03 -
- version 0.2.6
- Merged spec file changes from openSUSE:Factory
- Fixed libnl-devel build requires to build on 12.1
- Updated FSF address in copyright/license statements
2012-07-02 -
- version 0.2.5
- Fixed several bugs reported in bnc#760500, bnc#763388,
bnc#765040, bnc#754001:
- Fetch ip addresses and routes in system refresh via
netlink, adds libnl-1 dependency to libnetcontrol.
- Do not use -o rc for ifup or it fails when startmode
is set to manual.
- Always call ifstatus in ncf_if_status and not check
interface operstate to better match ifstatus results
- Check type while creating topology tree as well, not
only if the interface specific data exists.
- Do not report error in ncf_if_xml_state when interface
does not exists any more [has been stopped/removed].
- Improved error handling, report several errors once
- Expose a lot of error details to the caller
- Fixed to parse and configure complete interface trees
and fixed a senseless type check that caused SEGV.
- Fetch mac address from system when not in the config
- Fixed arp ip target bonding option handling and expose
errors while trying to add not unique slave interface.
- Refresh config handle earlier in ncf_define, fixed a
double free in regression test it does.
- Automatically start port/slave/base interfeces when
stating a bridge/bond/vlan.
