Rating: moderate
References: #904323 #905421 #909307 #911299 #911562 #914792

Affected Products:
openSUSE 13.2

An update that has 6 recommended fixes can now be installed.


wicked was updated to version 0.6.17 fixing various bugs.

- nanny: fixed a memory-leak on policy load failure
- wickedd: fixed broken dummy0 autocreation workaround
- ifreload: segfault fix to require argument for --timeout option
- client/nanny: initial handing of link-detection/require-link and timeout
control flags (LINK_REQUIRED, LINK_READY_WAIT variables in suse ifcfg)
to continue setup without ready link when requested in the config or
based on device requirements (bsc#911562,bsc#914792).
- client/nanny: wait for event ACKs from wickedd instead to continue
on successful request results where possible, to minimize the risk
of an event backlog (bsc#905421).
- client/nanny: fsm timer and cleanup related fixes and improvements, fix
to use "device-setup" (MAC, bond/bridge options, ...) as state name
instead of "device-up" and use "device-up" as state when the device/link
is administratively set UP. Separated waitLinkUp method to wait for
link/carrier from linkUp setting it administratively UP.
- wickedd: fix to handle automatically created dummy0 interface
- wireless: consider auth-proto parameter (wpa1|wpa2) (bsc#911299)
- ipv6: add accept-dad sysctl support, fix accept-ra constants
- dhcp4: do not set/query mtu if set in the config (bsc#904323)
- dhcp4: limit MTU to be lower-equal 576 as before
- dhcp4: completed user-class option support permitting an rfc3004
formatted option or as non-rfc, but widely used string (bsc#909307)
