If it isn't set correctly its an iproute problem. Did you actually
experience any problems?

Well, my patch for iproute2 to enable multipath algorithm selection is currently being merged to Stephen together with the ematch bits. We had to work out a dependency on GNU flex first (the berkley version uses the same executable names) so the inclusion was delayed a bit.

So its no problem but simply missing support. BTW, do you know if Stephen's new CVS repository is exported somewhere?

Yes, we did experience a problem. The routing doesnt work as advertised (i.e. it wont utilize the multiple routes). Patrick is correct in saying its missing support.


From what you are saying it seems the problem will be corrected by a new feature in iproute2 that allows the user to select this ability. Is this correct? Also, does this mean my patch is not needed? It seems to me that it should be supported somehow in the kernel seeing as how everyone might not utilize iproute2.

Once again, please cc me in the reply because I am not a member of the list.

Thanks,
Patrick Jenkins
