View Full Version : PPPD route changes affect Packagekit

2nd August 2008, 04:18 AM

Just found some new behaviour that broke Packagekit.

When starting my adsl connection, the following routing table is set up

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface UH 0 0 0 ppp0 U 0 0 0 br0 U 0 0 0 ppp0

Note that the gateway default no longer exists, but a host number is identified as the next step for internet addresses.

My reading seems to indicate that this happens so that existing default routes are not trashed.

Fair enough, but Packagekit looks for the existence of a default route to see if there is a live internet connection. It fails, and says there is no connection.

What was the intention?

Any one else want to post their routing table (route -n)

Does the PackageKit in updates-testing fix things for you? If not, please open a bug in bugzilla.

seems to be ok now with default settings.
