Description Samuel Tardieu 2012-10-26 19:48:15 UTC
When trying to stop dibbler-client (from net-misc/dibbler-0.8.2) using the initscript, it hangs indefinitely:

# /etc/init.d/dibbler-client stop
 * Stopping DHCPv6 client: dibbler-client ...| Dibbler - a portable DHCPv6, version 0.8.2 (CLIENT, Linux port)
| Authors : Tomasz Mrugalski<thomson(at)>,Marek Senderski<msend(at)>

| Homepage:
Sending TERM signal to process 5089
Waiting for signalled process termination... 
 * dibbler-client: caught SIGINT, aborting

Even then, dibbler-client still runs.

( I expected the ebuilds to use newinitd instead of insinto/doins. :)
Comment 2 Markos Chandras (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-11-04 10:57:39 UTC
I have no ipv6 so I can't test it. Patches are welcomed
Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2013-02-23 20:10:51 UTC
Samuel, can you still reproduce it? I cannot anymore. See upstream report <>. Just for curiosity, what was your kernel and libc at time of your original report?
Comment 4 Petr Pisar 2013-03-12 18:02:29 UTC
At the end, there was a race. Fix is attached at upstream bug report.
Comment 5 Markos Chandras (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-03-29 11:01:09 UTC
Thanks. We will track upstream
Comment 6 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-09-11 08:31:41 UTC
Reporter, could you reply to this upstream test request?

Comment 7 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2013-12-02 14:32:31 UTC
Thanks for keeping up with this (from It would be nice to have it fixed for 1.0 :)
