openSUSE-RU-2012:1651-1: moderate: sysconfig: various bugfixes
openSUSE Recommended Update: sysconfig: various bugfixes

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2012:1651-1
Rating: moderate
References: #716652 #775281 #780644 #784952 #785240
Affected Products:
openSUSE 12.1

An update that has 5 recommended fixes can now be installed.


The sysconfig network scripts received various updates
fixing bugs and improving performance:

- Execute netconfig/ntp-runtime update in background, so
dhcp post processing works faster when ntpdc needs a
while (bnc#780644).
- Changed rcnetwork to not report dhcp in background to
systemd (bnc#785240,bnc#780644). You may set
/etc/sysconfig/network/dhcp as the samba/cifs hooks make
systemctl calls to reload/restart nmb and other services
which block (systemd deadlock) ifup scripts for a long
- Fixed to not report failure while setting unsupported
power management option in ifup-wireless as the support
and features depends on the driver (bnc#716652).
- Fixed to check and reject too long interface names or
names with suspect characters, do not wait when creation
of virtual interface name fails (bnc#784952).
- Fixed netconfig/ntp-runtime to not use try-restart as its
start may block for a while, so just add servers ourself.
When ntpd is not running (not yet started), the init
script will pickup our servers later (bnc#780644).
- Fixed ifup-dhcp to not start dhcp clients too early or
they may be unable to send packets and just increase
resend time. Instead, load af_packet module early and
wait for link ready (bnc#780644).
- Check before running a script in netcontrol_services
