Updated iproute packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The iproute packages provide networking utilities like ip and rtmon, which use the advanced networking capabilities of the Linux kernel.
Prior to this update, the print_route() could, udner circumstances use the wrong "hz" value. As a consequence, the "ip route show" option returned an incorrect value for rto_min (minimum TCP retransmission timeout). This update modifies the underlying code to identify the different "hz" values. Now, the correct rto_min value is displayed.
Prior to this update, the tc command-line utility generated a wrong filter match for the IPv6 "priority", the resulting match did not reflect the IPv6 header field proper. This update modifies the underlying code to match the IPv6 "Priority" header as expected.
All users of iproute are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
