Maas is being fixed to use “ip” instead of ifconfig. The reason why it wasn’t noticed before is because MAAS does only use LTS releases for commissioning. Since we only run ifconfig -a during commissioning, then the regression wasn’t found till recently.

Telecom & Networking Systems Engineer -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to net-tools in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1763534 Title: ifconfig -s (or -a -s) only outputs 8 characters of the interface name, when interfaces are 10+ characters. Status in net-tools package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in net-tools source package in Bionic: Confirmed Bug description: When executing ifconfig, it outputs the whole 10 characters of the interface name. However, when using ifconfig -s (or ifconfig -a -s) it doesn't include all the name of the interface (or 10+ characters). Instead, it outputs only 8 characters of the interface. ubuntu@dradis:~$ ifconfig -a enP2p1s0f0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 10.245.71.108 netmask 255.255.248.0 broadcast 10.245.71.255 inet6 fe80::ae1f:6bff:fe09:c052 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link> ether ac:1f:6b:09:c0:52 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 154570 bytes 229998298 (229.9 MB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 61080 bytes 6131460 (6.1 MB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0 enP2p1s0f1: flags=4098<BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 ether ac:1f:6b:09:c0:53 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0 ubuntu@dradis:~$ ifconfig -a -s Iface MTU RX-OK RX-ERR RX-DRP RX-OVR TX-OK TX-ERR TX-DRP TX-OVR Flg enP2p1s0 1500 154607 0 0 0 61101 0 0 0 BMRU enP2p1s0 1500 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 BM To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/net-tools/+bug/1763534/+subscriptions -- Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~touch-packages More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
