Bug#779350: linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64: Bridge no longer passes some multicast packets

Package: src:linux
Version: 3.2.65-1+deb7u2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Upon upgrading my linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 package from
3.2.65-1+deb7u1 to 3.2.65-1+deb7u2 it appears that my bridge device is
no longer able to pass (at least some) multicast packets.

I've reproduced the problem on two machines (on the first I solved it
by upgrading to the wheezy-backports kernel, on the second one I
ensured that the problem didn't exist before upgrading and that it was
present once I upgraded.)

I originally saw the problem when multicasting from KVM guests but it
appears to be reproducible from the host itself even with no virtual
machines running:

$ brctl show br0
bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
br0             8000.0025904f1b00       no              eth0

Reportbug has helpfully included the rest of my network configuration
below but let me know if you need more information.

Steps to reproduce using open-mtools:

1. On the host with the bridge run:

Bug#779347: Acknowledgement (keepalived: is missing a systemd service unit)


I have included a small patch to provide a systemd service file and use
dh-systemd for proper installation and activation.

The included keepalived.service is inspired by the ones from Arch Linux
and Fedora and the instructions on the debian wiki on systemd packaging.

I am not sure, if the 'systemd-journald-dev-log.socket' in 'After=' is
really neseccary, but it surely does not hurt.

With this patch I have successfully build a package based on
keepalived_1.2.13-1 from jessie using pbuilder.

If you need any further information, please let me know.

Bug#779349: ITP: care -- make linux programs reproducible on all linux systems

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Remi Duraffort <ivoire <at> videolan.org>

* Package name    : care
  Version         : 2.2.0
  Upstream Author : C├ędric Vincent <cedric.vincent <at> st.com>
* URL             : http://reproducible.io
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : make linux programs reproducible on all linux systems

CARE monitors the execution of the specified command to create an archive that
contains all the material required to re-execute it in the same context.

That way, the command will be reproducible everywhere, even on Linux systems
that are supposed to be not compatible with the original Linux system. CARE is
typically useful to get reliable bug reports, demonstrations, artifact
evaluation, tutorials, portable applications, minimal rootfs, file-system
coverage, ...

By design, CARE does not record events at all. Instead, it archives 
environment variables and accessed file-system components -- before
modification -- during the so-called initial execution. Then, to reproduce 
this execution, the re-execute.sh script embedded into the archive restores 
the environment variables and relaunches the command confined into the saved

Bug#779347: keepalived: is missing a systemd service unit

Package: keepalived
Version: 1:1.2.13-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

  * The keepalived package does not include a systemd service unit
  * This results in some usability problems if used with salt(-minion)
    or puppet, see #760616
  * In short: 'systemctl is-enabled keepalived' does not work,
    so salt never knows it is enabled
  * I have a simple patch available, which I will attach to the bug

Bug#779346: example for a native package

Package: git-dpm
Version: 0.9.1-1
Severity: wishlist

It would be very helpful to have an example for creating a 
native package in git-dpm(1) as well. The "upstream-tarball" 
examples in git-dpm are quite discouraging.

Bug#767994: cross-gcc-4.9-armhf: Will not build arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.9.

Source: cross-gcc-4.9-armhf
Followup-For: Bug #767994

Hi, i came accross something related

.../../libtool: line 1158: /usr/src/debug/cross-gcc/cross-
gcc-4.9-armhf-11/gcc-4.9.2/build/./gcc/xgcc: No such file or directory
Makefile:570: recipe for target 'compatibility.lo' failed

If i put the sources in a path that doesn't contains 'src/' (like /opt/cross-
gcc instead of /usr/src/cross-gcc) everythings works fine.

It seems to be a consequence of this sed command a bit before:

-e '/vpath/!s,src/c,src/debug/c,'

Which generates several wrong paths.

/bin/bash ../../libtool --tag CXX   --mode=compile /usr/src/debug/cross-gcc

A log of the build is attached.
