Description Franz Glauber Vanderlinde 2012-07-30 15:54:36 UTC
When trying to use ifmetric with kernel 3.5 on AMD64 it fails with 

<pre>NETLINK: Packet too small or truncated! 32!=16!=1012</pre>

This is probably an upstream bug, but can be fixed with proposed patch in

I'll create an ebuild to test building with this patch later.

Build info is fine, no errors.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the command with any interface
Actual Results:  
NETLINK: Packet too small or truncated! 32!=16!=1012

Expected Results:  
metric changed

A me-too comment - I solved the issue with the patch referred to in the launchpad bug report.  ifmetric works as expected after rebuilding.
Comment 6 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-11-05 09:01:16 UTC
The patch seems to be a quite random change, but apparently it's been good enough since 2009. Applied in -r2.
