head's up.

i did a routine update on my f25 hda and the network had trouble coming up after a reboot (the kernel was updated).

i am not sure what sw on it caused this, but dnsmasq failed to start, and it was running two processes and long parameters.
(unfortunately, i closed the terminal and i lost exactly was showed)

the following packages were updated. however it could be that some packages were updated before this update but there was no reboot and the issue may not have triggered:

#1 Updated by bigfoot65 over 5 years ago

I am running a F25 upgraded HDA from F23 with no issues. It's my backup HDA, but all updates have not caused any issues best I can tell.

#2 Updated by cpg over 5 years ago

virtualization confirmed. after a reboot this dnsmasq process took over my hda's default one:

nobody    1752  0.0  0.0  49104   368 ?        S    14:12   0:00 /sbin/dnsmasq --conf-file=/var/lib/libvirt/dnsmasq/default.conf --leasefile-ro --dhcp-script=/usr/libexec/libvirt_leaseshelper
root      1753  0.0  0.0  49076   368 ?        S    14:12   0:00 /sbin/dnsmasq --conf-file=/var/lib/libvirt/dnsmasq/default.conf --leasefile-ro --dhcp-script=/usr/libexec/libvirt_leaseshelper

my work-around until i re-install my hda:

killall dnsmasq
systemctl start dnsmasq

i think the virt libraries were brought in by pungi (the ISO/image building tool), after looking at the dependencies. solution:

# rpm -e libvirt-libs-2.2.0-2.fc25.x86_64 libvirt-daemon  libguestfs libguestfs-tools-c libvirt-daemon-driver-network libvirt-daemon-driver-storage libvirt-daemon-driver-qemu libvirt-daemon-driver-interface libvirt-daemon-driver-nodedev libvirt-daemon-driver-nwfilter libvirt-daemon-driver-secret libvirt-daemon-kvm libguestfs-xfs pungi
