Description David Williams 2008-05-14 12:23:51 UTC
If the /var/run/vde.ctl directory exists when vde_swith starts it runs but doesn't create the ctl socket in /var/run/vde.ctl. Then vde_plug returns to the command prompt immediately with no output. vde_switch shows up in ps but doesn'work The /var/run/vde.ctl directory can be left hanging by vdeq qemu.

Possible workaround: moding the /etc/init.d/vde script to remove /var/run/vde.ctl?
Best fix: moding vde_switch and or vdeq to be tidy.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure there is no /var/run/vde and do /etc/init.d/vde start
2. Restart any associated tap interfaces
3. Run "vdeq qemu -net nic,vlan=0 -net vde,vlan=0,sock=/var/run/vde.ctl/ <image-file-path> in my case a windows image.
4. Do /etc/init.d/vde stop
5. Exit vdeq/qemu.

Actual Results:  
Directory /var/run/vde.ctl remains and starting vde reports ok but doesn't create a socket and doesn't function. Possibly the socket is somewhere else.

Expected Results:  
Either vdeq removes the directory on exit or vde_switch reuses it on startup.

Taking vde.
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2012-06-08 13:09:12 UTC
Still valid with 2.3.1?

> Still valid with 2.3.1?

Or 2.3.2? (bug #409867)

Is this package still maintained?
Comment 4 Nico Baggus 2017-10-03 23:13:44 UTC
vde-2.3.2-r4 exists

vdeq is depracated. and /var/run/vde.ctl should never be a directory.

I think this can be closed.
