Thanks Marco Steinacher for reporting.
README Information about the net-tools package NET-TOOLS A collection of programs that form the base set of the NET-3 networking distribution for the Linux operating system. This package includes the important tools for controlling the network subsystem of the Linux kernel. This includes arp, hostname, ifconfig, netstat, rarp and route. Additionally, this package contains utilities relating to particular network hardware types (plipconfig, slattach, mii-tool) and advanced aspects of IP configuration (iptunnel, ipmaddr). Please include the output of "program --version" when reporting bugs. Contents: README This file. README.ipv6 Notes for people hacking IPv6. INSTALLING Installation instructions. COPYING Your free copy of the GNU General Public License. TODO Some things that need to be done. The Homepage (including CVS repository, release downloads and a form to request enhancements) is hosted by BerliOS Developer. Please consider to join the project if you want to contribute: http://net-tools.berlios.de/ Notes ----- This is net-tools 1.6x. You need kernel 2.0 or later to use these programs. These programs should compile cleanly with both glibc (version 2.0 or 2.1) and libc5, though support for libc5 is not well tested. The NLS support was changed from catgets to GNU gettext by Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <email@example.com> in June, 1998, to make the source more readable. Translations to brazilian portuguese (pt_BR), German (de), Estonian (ee), Czech (cz) and French (fr) are available. Others are welcome! route/netstat -r do not yet support different address families cleanly. IPX/DDP/AX25 people, please feel free to add the code. ifconfig now supports changing media types for interfaces. This requires a version 2.2 kernel, and many devices do not support it yet. The tools now support the layout of the 2.2 kernel /proc files (Bernd Eckenfels). Some configuration options require kernel version 2.2 and/or particular versions of the C library. The defaults should be safe for all common environments but some of the more esoteric hardware and protocol families may be more touchy. Feel free to send patches if you have problems.
