1254028 [precise] network manager set incorrect /64 prefix from dhcpv6 client

Version: 2013-09-04 16:07:32 UTC

  network-manager ( precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/dnsmasq-dbus-updates.patch: do DNS updates to dnsmasq via
    DBUS rather than restarting it all the time. (LP: #1004775)
  * debian/network-manager.dirs: add /etc/NetworkManager/dnsmasq.d as a path
    to install.
  * debian/control: network-manager depends on at least dnsmasq-base
    2.59-4ubuntu0.1, which is the lowest version that provides dbus.

1004775 NetworkManager restarts dnsmasq and adds host route on every IPv6 route lookup

Version: 2013-01-14 13:07:00 UTC

  network-manager ( precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/git_use_wpa_wext_methods_50435e1.patch: use the same kind
    of logic as wpasupplicant instead of just looking at whether a driver
    reports signal over nl80211 to decide whether to use that or fallback
    to wext. (LP: #1035590)
  * debian/patches/ipw2x00-no-nl80211.patch: replaced by the patch above.
  * debian/patches/git_ignore_ipconfig_dups_cca4052.patch: silently ignore
    duplicates in NMIP[46]Config objects; which tends to happen fairly
    regularly with RDNSS. (LP: #996032)
  * debian/patches/nm-ipv6-route-cache.patch: don't re-add routes we receive
    from kernel notifications to the routing table if they have the
    RTM_F_CLONED flag; since that means they're host routes used temporarily
    by the kernel to reach a specific destination; keeping them would cause at
    least issues with VPNs, and possibly confusion with routing daemons.
    Thanks to Ben Jenks for the patch. (LP: #1038541)
  * debian/ifblacklist_migrate.sh: make sure that "iface X inet6" entries added
    by d-i also get commented out if set up for dhcp or auto -- this follows
    what is already done for IPv4, where such devices should be handled by
    NetworkManager. This fixes issues where people installing using d-i and
    where IPv6 autoconfiguration is available would get their interfaces
    ignored by NetworkManager when installing desktop. (LP: #995165)

  network-manager ( precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * debian/network-manager.upstart: add "and static-network-up" to ensure the
    loopback device is really up before we start dnsmasq. (LP: #993379)
  * debian/patches/git_kernel_ipv6_default_route_77de91e.patch: avoid fighting
    with the kernel for what IPv6 default route should be set: let the kernel
    set his own, then add a new route with a different metric so that we can
    go back and remove it later. (LP: #988183)
  * debian/patches/nm-ip6-rs.patch: avoid disconnections due to RDNSS expiry,
    send a Router Sollicit to try and get new RDNSS data. (LP: #993571)
